About the Mars Art Gallery
The Mars Art Gallery was formally launched in March 2005 to serve as a showcase for artistic renditions of Mars based on data returned by a variety of Martian robotic missions, including Mariner 9, the Viking orbiters, Mars Global Surveyor, Mars Pathfinder, and the Mars Exploration Rovers. These renderings were originally created to serve as illustrations for the many public lectures I give on the subject of Mars exploration. If you are in the greater Chicago area, check out Presentations About Mars to learn more.
To facilitate site searches, a site map is provided that lists all the pages on the site along with a brief description of each page.
A brief biography of Jim Plaxco is also available for those seeking more information about the artist/webmaster.
