Beyond Cassini opens in NYC hpgrp Gallery, Tribeca

WOW and Artist, Director Gabriel Pulecio are pleased to announce the opening of “BEYOND CASSINI”, an original new art work premiering September 15th, in Tribeca, New York at hpgrp Gallery.
It’s been said, just before a person dies their life’s biggest moments flash before their eyes. “Beyond Cassini” uses this narrative to celebrate the accomplishments of one of the most successful and beloved Satellites in space exploration history. As Cassini begins its final flight into Saturn’s upper atmosphere with a mission of disintegration, visuals flash back through time giving viewers highlights of this dying satellite’s life. Fleeting moments and flashbacks allow viewers to celebrate 20 years of Cassini’s achievements in a very personal, non-linear, stylized exhibition.

Opening September 15th, this exhibition will coincide with NASA’s “Grand Finale” event. Beyond Cassini will run from September 15th - September 27th, 2017.
Visuals flash back through time giving viewers highlights of this dying satellite’s life.
