Leonardo Announces SpaceartS: The Space and the Arts Database

Leonardo/OLATS and the Ours Foundation have joined forces to create a
database about space art documenting the works of artists who, since the
mid-19th Century, have taken outer space as a theme, subject, or object for
their creations. When completed, this database will host over a thousand
entries. Artists are invited to submit their work for inclusion in the
database. Entry forms to submit your artworks are available online at

The SpaceartS database project is funded by the European Space Agency and is
co-sponsored by the International Academy of Astronuatics; Advisors to the
project include: 
* IAAA (International Association ofAstronomical Artists) - www.iaaa.org
