“After the debut of her stunning MassMOCA site-specific masterpiece, the world’s largest watercolor, Barbara Prey’s international fame only soared higher. The first woman commissioned more than once by NASA to be an artist in residence, she created the official commemorative print for the space shuttle Columbia. Her first-hand stories of working with NASA are glimpses into the excitement of art’s highest-level interaction with science.” -Museum Director Charles Riley

BARBARA ERNST PREY | The International Space Station, 2002, Watercolor. Prey chose watercolor for this rendering of the International Space Station before its construction was completed. Watercolor lends itself to fragility, freshness, drenched colors and speed. This work was the first of four NASA commissions for Prey. For this and her other paintings Prey visited NASA centers and did extensive research”. -Space Center Houston Catalogue Esssay
