    In Elevator to the Moon: Retro-Future Visions of Space , 15 contemporary artists draw inspiration from 20thcentury predictions to create work that celebrates beautifully flawed ideas and inspires new visions for thefuture of space travel.

    Ask any economist or weatherman and they will agree, predicting the future is hard, and they arent evenprognosticating about the distant future! From flying cars to meals-in-a-pill, there are numerous excitingconcepts that never made it off the drawing board. The greatest, and perhaps most wacky, disparities betweenfuture predictions and contemporary realities is in the realm of space travel. Why is my home not equipped witha transporter pad? Vacations on the moon were supposed to be commonplace by now! Grandma should bespending her golden years on Mars, instead of Florida.

    From the comfort of our 21st century lives, we can smugly point out where 20th century predictions went awry.The communicator that Spock uses only makes calls to the Enterprise, while the cell phone in your pocketmakes calls, texts, plays music, surfs the web and addicts you to Angry Birds. But without imagining Spockscommunicator, would your superior 21st century self even have a cell phone? Even if it turned out completelydifferent than planned, the dreams of scientists, engineers and artists have shaped our future.

    Artists include Chris Bishop, Scott Brooks, Jared Davis, Dana Ellyn, Elstabo, Todd Gardner, Linas Garsys,Sherill Anne Gross, Emily Greene Liddle, Rob Lindsay, Chris Rackley, Matt Sesow, Scott Speck, Steve Strawnand Andrew Wodzianski.
