Lecture-Concert Series: NASA STEAM initiative with Edwin Faughn

04/17/2018, 12:00 PM


Location: Student Union
Room: Auditorium



The theme for Create @ State 2018 is focused around the STEAM initiative to highlight integration of STEM with Art and Design.

This year’s keynote speaker, A-State graduate Edwin Faughn, has been passionate about astronomy, aviation and art since he was a child. His earliest memories of art were watching his father create drawings of various projects he worked on at home or on his job. Inspired by Carl Sagan’s series Cosmos, he began to focus his interests and artistic abilities on more serious astronomical work.

Edwin entered the planetarium field as the Artist-Photographer for the Sharpe Planetarium in Memphis. Over the years he has produced a tremendous amount of original artwork, animation, and computer graphics for space science magazines, planetarium and theatrical productions, exhibitions, newspapers, murals, books, and more recently digital media.

With generous funding support from the Create@State program and the College of Liberal Arts and Communication.
