Eric Ober space sculpture garden

There is a newly-installed space sculpture garden located opposite the main entrance to NASA's Johnson Space Center in Houston on Saturn Lane at the corner of NASA Parkway (NASA Road One).

The sculptures, created by artist Eric Ober, commemorate milestones in space history, as well as recognize present and on-going NASA programs. Each installation is accompanied by a plaque describing the event, spacecraft or astronaut.

Great photos. This is a beautiful display. Very pleasant to grab an evening yogurt and stroll among the artwork and fountains... and you can see a Saturn V and Shuttle just across the road. Kudos to Nassau Bay for making this happen.

Normally I think 2D flats are cheesy, but these are really good. I like them!
