NASA paintings envision suburban America
taking to space for South Bay NUMU exhibit
NUMU, the New Museum of Los Gatos, claims to be "locally connected" and "globally relevant." With its current exhibit, the lively little museum goes beyond global, reaching for the stars.
'Rick Guidice: The NASA Paintings,' on exhibit through February 14, features 11 amazing and optimistic visions about the potential for men and women—yes, and their pets too, along with chickens and cows—to live in outer space.
Although there are only a few paintings, they have quite an impact because of their strong imagery, level of detail, and size, which is 48 inches wide and 38.5 inches high.
The museum, at 106 E. Main Street, is open 1 to 5 p.m. Wednesdays, 11 a.m. to 8 p.m. Thursdays, and 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. Fridays through Sundays. Entrance is $5, free for members and those under 18.
