Into the Great White Sands. Photography by Craig Varjabedian

Into the Great White Sands: Photographs by Craig Varjabedian
August 19-October 31, 2021

Explore the newest National Park, White Sands National Park, with Into the Great White Sands: Photographs by Craig Varjabedian. Before White Sands became a National Park on December 20, 2019, artist Craig Varjabedian explored the surrealistic landscape of White Sands, near Alamogordo, NM, creating masterful images over a period of five years. White Sands is breathtakingly vast, encompassing 275 miles with a landscape entirely made of crystals of gypsum. Pure white dunes roll in waves for miles to the mountainous horizon- forming a landscape filled with spectacular color and astonishing light. The park is brimming with a history both ancient and recently relevant, contained in an environment with flourishing vegetation and wildlife – whose days begin in vivid sunrise and end in dramatically vibrant sunsets. The Sands is an unforgettably unique place – a land that words fail to adequately describe, but whose visual beauty and wondrous imagery Varjabedian has brilliantly captured in these eloquent and evocative pictures. The fifty images selected for this exhibition of Into the Great White Sands are from his collection found in his recently published book of the same name.

To the Moon: Snoopy Soars with NASA

To the Moon: Snoopy Soars with NASA
August 19 – October 31, 2021

Just before the first man landed on the moon, Charlie Brown and Snoopy soared through space with NASA’s Apollo 10 mission in May 1969. The exhibition To the Moon: Snoopy Soars with NASA examines the history of Apollo 10 and the Peanuts characters’ role in that flight and in the NASA Manned Flight Awareness safety program.

It is difficult to imagine—although some remember it well—the excitement that the race for the moon invoked fifty years ago. As the decade of the 1960s was coming to a close, America and the rest of the world waited with great anticipation to see if NASA could achieve President John F. Kennedy’s challenge, put forth in May 1961, of putting a man on the moon by the end of the decade. Consequently, it was a very great honor, indeed, when the crew of Apollo 10 chose to nickname their command and lunar modules Charlie Brown and Snoopy, respectively. The flight of Apollo 10 in May 1969 was the “dress rehearsal” for the lunar landing that was scheduled for July 1969. Astronauts Thomas Stafford and Eugene Cernan piloted “Snoopy” within 50,000 feet of the lunar surface as they scouted the landing area for Apollo 11 while John Young orbited the moon in the command module “Charlie Brown.”

Charles Schulz’s involvement with NASA began a year earlier than the 1969 flight of Apollo 10 when he was approached by NASA with a request to use Snoopy as their safety mascot. The Silver Snoopy Award program was instituted to improve the safety record of NASA employees and contractors. It proved to be a huge success with the astronauts and the employees. The Silver Snoopy pin is a much-coveted award. Snoopy has been on the job for 50 plus years and continues to this day in his role as NASA’s safety mascot.

Organized by the Charles M. Schulz Museum and Research Center, Santa Rosa, CA
