The saveJWST Art Initiative

Ladies and Gentlemen of the United States of America,
The James Webb Space Telescope is in trouble

In order to help raise awareness, we have decided to launch an Art Initiative. For those that are interested, our sister site http://savejwst.tumblr.com/ will be accepting and displaying publicly created artistic expressions relevant to saving the James Webb Space Telescope. If you are artistically inclined, or even if you are not and you just want this telescope to fly, then please feel free to make some art and to send it our way and we will post it for all the world to see.  

The rules are simple: 

1) No inappropriate images. This is vague, we know, especially in art. However, you know where most people draw the line and we would hope that you would respect that. People of all ages from all over the world will be able to see your art. 

2) Please keep it relevant to JWST. We want to save the Telescope from Congress and not detract from that fight. 

3) Art must be original. Please use your own work. 

4) No one will get paid or win anything. Understand that art submitted to us will not be used for commercial gain by us, or by anyone. Once it heads our way, we cannot be held responsible for financial losses or expected financial gain. You create this art and share it to help encourage public awareness ONLY. 

If you are interested, and we hope that you are, or if you have any questions, then please submit your artwork and/or questions to the following email address: 


We look forward to seeing some great responses!
