Rendering of the new Cici and Hyatt Brown Museum of Art, RLF
Dear friends, 2013 Promises to be an exciting time around the Museum of Arts & Sciences. We are anticipating a “ground breaking” year which will see the beginnings of construction on projects ANDREW SANDALLL several and many exciting exhibitions. We look forward to sharing all of these events with our valued community, MOAS members, volunteers, Trustees and Major Sponsors. Once completed, the new 26,000 square foot Cici and Hyatt Brown Museum of Art will house their unprecedented collection of Florida art, which they are generously gifting to the Museum over the next few years. As you know, their paintings have already been featured in our successful Reflections and Reflections II exhibitions, and we are all very excited about showcasing even more treasures from their world-class collections in this new building. Look for more details about the progress of this new addition to the Museum’s campus in the local media, on our Facebook page (facebook.com/moasdaytona) and at www.moas.org in the coming months. In addition to the new Museum, the long-awaited refurbishment of the West Wing in our current building will also be taking place within the next year. Through the hard work of Congressman John Mica and our valued friends at Volusia County and the City of Daytona Beach, we were awarded a FEMA grant of nearly $4.4 million to supplement the ECHO grant we had already received that will allow us to make the West Wing flood proof and restore all the gallery and administrative spaces affected by the flood in 2009.
These substantial projects have launched MOAS into an exciting period of evolution and growth and we are looking toward a future that has been just as bright as the past 50 years. This past December, we also proudly launched our Planned Giving promotional efforts. The Board of Trustees Planned Giving committee and staff have developed a program, entitled “What is Your Legacy?” which you will have seen advertised in the recent issues of Arts & Sciences. There is more information about this program, which is vital to the Museum, in this issue. We are also launching a noteworthy collaboration between MOAS, the United States of America, NASA and the John F. Kennedy Space Center. Florida Celebrates Space includes over forty paintings from the NASA collection which exemplify the history of American spaceflight from the Mercury program all the way through the recent conclusion of the Space Shuttle era. The exhibition celebrates the 500th anniversary of Ponce de Leon’s discovery of Florida. Included are pieces by Annie Leibovitz, Andy Warhol and James Wyeth. In addition to the exhibit, MOAS will be featuring a number of special speakers from the Smithsonian Institution and from the Kennedy Space Center, including Roger D. Launius, Ph.D., Senior Curator, Division of Space History, The National Air and Space Museum of the Smithsonian Institution, who will be speaking at a special Renaissance Society event as well as a special lecture free for MOAS members. Be sure to check Facebook, our website and of course, Arts & Sciences for details. Thank you for your continued support of MOAS – I look forward to seeing you around the Museum!

GROUNDBREAKING NEW EXHIBIT
SPACE By Seth Mayo, Curator of Astronomy
A noteworthy collaboration between the Government of the United States of America, the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA), the John F. Kennedy Space Center (KSC) and the Museum of Arts & Sciences includes over forty paintings from the heart of the NASA collection that exemplify the history of American spaceflight from the Mercury program (1958) all the way through the recent conclusion of the Space Shuttle era. (continued)
florida homecoming, Kent Sullivan Image credit: NASA NASA's Art Program can be traced back to March of 1962, when then NASA administrator, James Webb, wrote a memo to his staff stating his desire of inviting artists to interpret and record, in all art forms, the momentous events that were unfolding before their eyes. His foresight led to the creation of a rich and diverse collection of ground breaking art by many respected artists who captured the essence of space exploration. With unprecedented access to all levels of NASA's activities, the artists reveal spaceflight in not only a scientific light, but also an emotional and experiential one was well. 10 ARTS & SCIENCES MAGAZINE
The exhibition serves to celebrate the 500th anniversary of Ponce de Leon’s discovery of Florida and illustrates the peninsula not only as a destination for the first explorers, but as a gateway for those launching to explore new worlds beyond Earth. The fascinating artworks chosen emphasize the early history of NASA's role in spaceflight from the Mercury program all the way up through the Space Shuttle era, while at the same time, illustrating the untouched Florida landscape that served as the backdrop for these leaps for mankind.
In addition to being the nation’s gateway to space exploration, the John F. Kennedy Space Center is also home to Merritt Island’s National Wildlife Refuge, established in 1963. This expansive, pristine area (220 square miles in total) preserves a delicate part of Florida's ecosystem while providing the land necessary to enable safe launches. This juxtaposition between the untouched Florida that explorers such as Juan Ponce de Leon encountered and the manmade spaceport which would launch a new kind of explorer, flying toward the very stars that have

One such painting, Kent Sullivan's Florida Homecoming, seen on the cover of this issue, captures the Space Shuttle just before its triumphant landing. Even though the vehicle is traveling at tremendous speeds, Sullivan creates a serene and calming scene enveloping the 15,000 foot runway; lending a moment of peaceful contemplation before the mission comes to its exciting end. This theme is continued in the watercolor,
Rainbirds, by James Dean, the NASA employee who took leadership of the NASA Art Program under Administrator James Webb. Dean elegantly blends the beauty of Florida with the rigidity of the starkly colored structures essential to launching rockets. The contrast is seen in another watercolor, Waiting, from the renowned painter, James Wyeth, whose father and son were also artists in their own right. Simply portrayed are two bright red launch gantries separated by a lone palm tree. These imposing launch gantries served as support structures for rockets before liftoff. The stark contrast Wyeth
creates between the natural and artificial seems to bridge the connection between the old and the new. While photography and video footage were utilized extensively throughout NASA's history for documentation purposes, photographers and artists were also able to communicate intangible ideas through their artwork. The artist’s contributions in recording space history revealed a layer of depth, emotion and wonder not seen in photography of previous years. Continued on page 30

Discover the Daytona Mastodon Now - Spring 2013
The fossilized American mastodon (Mammut americanum) remains were unearthed last November in Daytona Beach. Select Mastodon fossils such as the jaw, teeth, ribs, vertebrae and partial tusks are included in the display â€“ about 20-30% of the animalâ€™s fossilized remains were recovered from the site by the Museum.
This exhibit features works by Benjamin West, Fragonard, Vermeyen, Leoni, van de Velde, Angelica Kauffmann and their contemporaries.
January 19 - April 28, 2013
When the Spanish touched the shores of the New World, early in the 16th century, they found unspoiled lands filled with abundant natural resources. Early descriptions and illustrations of the Americas were often included on maps that were recorded by these explorers and often included exaggerated accounts of exotic cultures composed of wild peoples living on vast lands overflowing with unlimited riches and featuring fantastic creatures. This exhibition includes maps, etchings, engravings and lithographs from the 17th through 19th centuries.
This significant collaboration between the United States of America, the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA), the John F. Kennedy Space Center (KSC) and the Museum of Arts & Sciences includes over forty paintings exemplifying the history of American spaceflight from the Mercury program (1958) all the way through the recent conclusion of the Space Shuttle era. Offered in celebration of the 500th anniversary of the discovery of Florida, this exhibition illustrates the peninsula not only as a destination for the first explorers, but as a gateway for those who would come centuries after, themselves en route to new worlds beyond imagination. Included are pieces by Annie Leibovitz, Andy Warhol, James Wyeth and Robert Rauschenberg.

MOAS Education Department news from J. ”Zach” Zacharias, Senior Curator oF Education and Curator of History
GROUNDBREAKING PROJECTS AND DISCOVERIES FROM THE MOAS EDUCATION DEPARTMENT
he Museum's education department has started a noteworthy and unique project with Burns Science and Technology Charter School in Oak Hill, Florida. The program is funded by a grant from the American Association of University Women (AAUW) and is based on STEM (science, technology, engineering, and math) curriculum principles. This new curriculum
is designed to help develop students who are prepared to be innovators, problem-solvers and thought leaders. The concept at the heart of STEM education is integration of math and science into the curriculum. The goal of this grant is to build a mock archaeological dig on the school grounds based on a pioneer woman who lived in Oak Hill in the 1880s. The sixth-, seventh- and eighth-grade students receive credit for this archaeology lab and help construct and excavate the site, analyze the artifacts, and create multimedia presentations about their findings. The grant also provides funding for guest speakers and field trips to other archaeological sites. Students are currently in the excavation phase and are documenting their findings. The final phase of the project will be the creation of a museum “exhibit” featuring the excavated artifacts in the school's media center.

The study of archaeology and history can provide these students with a basic understanding of the range of the human experience, while the integration of STEM skills helps build a critical thinking foundation that helps the students look to the future. The goal and outcome is to provide a real-world, hands-on experience for these students and provide a strong affinity for science, discovery and learning. In other news, the discovery of the prehistoric mastodon off of Nova Road in November 2011 has certainly caused excitement here at the Museum. The first public showing of the fossils occurred at the Museumâ€™s
Natural History Festival this September. It was one of the Museumâ€™s largest educational events ever, with over 1,430 guests in attendance! Visitors had the opportunity to see, touch and hold many of the fossil bones from this extinct Ice Age animal. We are proud to announce that the mastodon fossils are now on display in the West Wing of the Museum through late spring/ early summer 2013. "Discover the Daytona Mastodon" includes many bones representative of the ancient elephant's skeleton.
The display cases feature giant toes, teeth, ribs, skull and leg bones, as well as the incredible tusks. Although we do not have a complete skeleton, the fossils on display are impressive nonetheless. The exhibit also features an interactive multimedia component complete with archive photos taken from the excavation site and "fun facts" about how mastodons lived.

rts and Sciences magazine readers may have noticed a new feature in recent editions. This past year MOAS established a Planned Giving Committee that worked together to create a new giving program called "What is Your Legacy?", which has two important goals. First, it pays tribute to some of the philanthropic members of our community who have given substantial contributions that have allowed the Museum to grow, prosper and serve for nearly 60 years. "What is Your Legacy?" also looks forward into the future, and encourages todayâ€™s museum supporters to consider creating their own legacy with the Museum to benefit generations to come.
of gift establishes a living tribute that at once celebrates them, supports the Museumâ€™s continuing efforts and provides financial benefits to the donor.
There are some important decisions to be made in considering a legacy contribution. For a brief overview of planned giving options, download our new "What is Your Legacy?" brochure at www.moas.org. The Museum would be happy to work directly with donors and their financial advisors to craft a planned gift that best meets personal goals and wishes.
If you are interested in discussing the "What is Your Legacy?" program, please make an appointment with Jessi Smith, Director of Grants and Development: 386-255-0285 extension 339.
The beauty of a legacy gift is that it benefits the Museum as well as donors. Contributions can come in all shapes and sizes. Donors may show their financial support in ways they might not have thought possible and sometimes significantly enhance their own financial situation through a variety of tax incentives. Supporters have established planned gifts through bequests in their wills, beneficiary designations for IRAs, retirement plans, life insurance policies, estate contributions, contributions to the MOAS endowment and more. Some friends of the Museum make gifts in honor of a family member or friend to celebrate birthdays, anniversaries, graduations, holidays and other special occasions as well as to memorialize a loved one after their lifetime.

The Museum relies on the generosity of friends from throughout the community who understand the vital role MOAS plays across the region. Legacy gifts have contributed to the care of our diverse and significant art, science and history
Before making a legacy gift to MOAS, consult with financial, tax and legal advisors for a thorough analysis of individual situations and tax consequences, and to decide which ways of giving might work best. All charitable gifts should be directed to the Museum of Arts and Sciences, Inc., a not-for-profit 501(c)3 tax-exempt charitable organization located at 352 S. Nova Road, Daytona Beach, FL 32114.

BY GUILD PRESIDENT DR. KAY BRAWLEY
Sometimes in the Winds of Change, We Find Our True Direction To our valued members and supporters, The change of each season brings about thoughts of changes for each of us in our lives, and perhaps even in our local community as we begin the exciting construction projects at the Museum in 2013. Many of you each have seen firsthand the changes that our Museum community has gone through over the last 50 years, many of which have been brought on by your generosity now and the philanthropic legacy of those who came before us. It is a new year...let's reflect on what we are thankful for. I am thankful for a great Guild team. It is not surprising that the Guild of the Museum of Arts and Sciences has reached $65,000 as its contribution to the Museum for the 2011-2012 year. My leadership signature quote over the past couple years has been: Success is a Team Sport. Our focused Teamwork has paid off for the Guild, the Museum and its community. Babe Ruth stated, "The way a team plays as a whole determines its success. You may have the greatest bunch of individual stars in the world, but if they donâ€™t play together, the club wonâ€™t be worth a dime."
Guild Members Joan Horneff, 1st Vice President, and Kay Brawley, President, present the first check for the Cici and Hyatt Brown Museum of Art Endowment to Andrew Sandall, MOAS Executive Director. 26 ARTS & SCIENCES MAGAZINE
According to a recent Gallup report, the world’s top performing organizations understand that member engagement is a force that drives performance outcomes. Understanding the potential of teams is key to our success. The promotion of teamwork is not a guarantee of success, but worldclass organizations do not attain that status without it. The Guild's smart chairs and leaders have strategically worked to promote an environment where teamwork thrives and members willingly contribute.
Where have we been?
We appreciate all you did to make our busy fall and Holiday season be a success from the Halifax Arts Festival with its fabulous weather, happy artists and patrons, to the Festival of Trees Gala activities, and to the Museum's first New Year's Eve Masquerade Ball: the Night to Remember.

Yes, the Guild has a golden glow, celebrating the finale of its 50th anniversary!

Thank you for your commitment to the Guild's mission of continued success in support of the Museum and its rich resources in the arts, sciences and history. The secret to unleashing our potential as a contributing organization to the Museum is in releasing the genius and power of our teamwork. Cheers to all of you...you're making a positive difference in your support of the Museum!

Andy Warhol, the renowned pop artist, took this idea to another level with his iconic Moonwalk. Seen in the silkscreen reproduction found in this exhibit, Warhol completely transforms one of the most famous photographs taken in NASA history – astronaut Buzz Aldrin standing next to the American flag on the lunar surface. The original photo, taken by the late Neil Armstrong, stands on its own as a testament to the surreal act of launching humans from Cape Canaveral and landing on the moon. Warhol’s interpretation, featuring pink highlighting of the spacesuit and accentuation of the flag and lunar surface, adds a cultural context to the moment. The multitude of photographs taken throughout NASA’s storied history from varied artists not only depicted the thrilling launches or the astronauts in action, but also behind-the-scenes as well. The Leibovitz photograph, Eileen Collins, evokes an astronaut’s often calm and collected demeanor, while also showing the significance and delicacy of the work at hand. This 1999 photograph was taken during a training activity at the Johnson Space Center in Houston,

Texas. Later that year, astronaut Eileen Collins would fly in a Shuttle mission (STS-93) from Florida as the first female commander in NASA’s history.
"This 500th anniversary of the discovery of Florida not only gives us pause to reflect on the extraordinary changes in civilization and advancement of science related to our beautiful state, but also helps us look beyond this planet to the unknown worlds still to be explored."
This 500th anniversary of the discovery of Florida not only gives us pause to reflect on the extraordinary changes in civilization and advancement of science related to our beautiful state, but also helps us look beyond this planet to the unknown worlds still to be explored.
