Based in the United States, ZGAC is the first international space arts organization of its kind in the world. Its existence gives evidence of a growing movement towards cultural and artistic expression in space that is now abundantly proliferating right alongside scientific pursuits.
ZGAC directly supports artists in gaining access to space flight technologies in support of STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, Music and Mathematics). We at ZGAC know that the arts and cultural expression are on par with science and technology and hybridization is key to our future success as a species.

European Space Agency Research & Technology Centre, Noordwijk, The Netherlands, 2004
ZGAC was introduced to space scientists and engineers by ZGAC Co-Founders: Laura Knott, Lorelei Lisowsky and Frank Pietronigro with a consortium of collaborators who continue to grow with each new project. In 2004, the establishment of our organization was discussed during the Space: Science, Technology and the Arts, the 7th Workshop On Space and The Arts, during a ZGAC presentation our Co-Founders made at the European Space Agency Research & Technology Centre. This international meeting of space artists, scientists and engineers was sponsored by Leonardo/Olats, The OURS Foundation, together with the European Space Agency and the International Academy of Astronautics – Commission VI.
Frank Pietronigro currently serves as ZGAC Projects Director.
