Description

Please join us for a reception with drinks and hors d'oeuvres before a preview screening of this summer's major PBS premiere event, American Experience: Chasing the Moon.

Following the screening, we will also hear from a local astronaut, Gary Payton.

Attire: business or business casual.

Call (719) 418-5851 with any questions.

Chasing the Moon, a film by Robert Stone, reimagines the race to the moon for a new generation, upending much of the conventional mythology surrounding the effort. The series recasts the Space Age as a fascinating stew of scientific innovation, political calculation, media spectacle, visionary impulses and personal drama. Utilizing a visual feast of previously overlooked and lost archival material — much of which has never before been seen by the public — the film features a diverse cast of characters who played key roles in these historic events.

This special evening is sponsored, in part, by El Pomar Foundation and Chevron.
