The Astronaut Scholarship Foundation (ASF) is commissioning artists to join in a unique opportunity to paint/decorate 8-foot fiberglass space shuttle statues which will be landing all over the county this fall for the Shuttles Orbiting the Space Coast program!
In partnership with the Kennedy Space Center Visitor Complex and Florida's Space Coast Office of Tourism, the program will showcase 100 shuttle statues at businesses and public venues in this community-wide effort while paying tribute to NASA's 50th Anniversary and its longest running manned vehicle - the Space Shuttle.
The ASF is searching for artists to be part of an elite group who will "fuel" the shuttles for launch into the community. Upon completion of a painted shuttle, the artist will receive a $1,000 honorarium. Artist applications are due by June 24, 2008 and are available online
or by calling 321-455-7012.
