Back to Space Organization Hosts Dedication Ceremony for "Spaceship Earth 1968" in Jacksboro, Texas

18 Sep 2021 2:00 PM | E Lee Wilson Jr (Administrator)

The Back to Space organization is building a state-of-the-art edutainment science facility in Jacksboro, Texas called the Lunar Landscape Experience, and the artwork of E. Lee Wilson, Jr. will be an integral part of it. Due to the generous donation of Mary A Beck Patil at the Apollo 14 celebration at Kennedy Space Center in June 2021, the painting entitled "Spaceship Earth 1968" will now hang in City Hall, in Jacksboro, Texas, until the facility is completed, sometime in 2022.

The city of Jacksboro was very welcoming to the artist and his family during the time they spent in the small town, which is the county seat of Jack County, Texas. They where treated to a number of local events and experiences during the three-day visit, which occurred on homecoming weekend for the high school football team.  A parade, visits to local restaurants, a fishing outing, and a chance to see the Tigers play (and win).  Mr. Wilson was also invited to exhibit more of his Cosmos work during the dedication ceremony.
