De Wilde joins The Moon Arts team

De Wilde joins the Moon Arts Group, a collaborative team of approximately 40 members, including CMU faculty, students and alumni working alongside independent artists and professionals, coordinated through the Frank-Ratchye STUDIO for Creative Inquiry in the College of Fine Arts. Together with our patron-level sponsors, 3rd Dimension Industrial 3D Printing, Arnano, the International Gemological Institute and General Dynamics Mission Systems, we are forging new ground in fabrication and design. De Wilde’s blackest-black will be included in the Moon Ark to be installed on the Moon in 2016. The Moon Arts project began in 2008 when Astrobotic, a Pittsburgh robotics company, called for a meeting with Dean Robinson of the College of Fine Arts at Carnegie Mellon. The Moon Arts Group has received generous in-kind, product and/or financial support from Astrobotic Inc., the Robotics Institute at CMU, CMU’s School of Art, School of Design, and College of Fine Arts, the Science and Humanities Scholars Program, Carnegie Museums of Pittsburgh, National Space Society, Commercial Type, the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA), the Frank-Ratchye STUDIO for Creative Inquiry, Arnano, 3rd Dimension Industrial 3D Printing, International Gemological Institute, James Madison University, the University of South Carolina, and anonymous individual donors.
