Because of Art

Pondering

I couldn’t help but think about the value of everyone having access to a quality arts education program while watching this film. I’m sure you’ll consider this as well if you take a few minutes to view it.

“What they should have sent was poets because I don’t think we captured in its entirety the grandeur of what we had seen.” 

~ Frank Borman, Commander of Apollo 8, December 27, 1958

In 1968, Apollo 8 astronauts Bill Anders, Frank Borman, and Jim Lovell took the first journey beyond Earth’s orbit. Earthrise tells the story of the image they captured of the Earth. The film recounts the astronauts’ experiences and explores the beauty, awe, and grandeur of the Earth against the blackness of space. The Earthrise photograph had an everlasting impact on the astronauts and humanity, offering a powerful perspective that transcended national, political, and religious boundaries.

Could the Earthrise photograph, 50 years later, become a symbol of remembrance that unites us as global citizens? Watch the film below.
