Each year, the Space Symposium commemorative space art poster is a treasured keepsake. Talented artists submit concepts well in advance of the event and compete for this honor. The 36th Space Symposium poster was designed by artist Richard Green from Seattle, Washington. Of note, Richard has designed several of our posters over the years.

The poster will be distributed to Symposium attendees at the Space Foundation booth, in the Lockheed Martin Exhibit Center Pavilion. In addition to being used as a poster, Green's artwork is driving the design for all 36th Space Symposium advertising, collateral, signage and promotional materials, as well as for this website.
