Though not required, “Indoctrination” has been one of the most interesting ways for visitors to engage with SPACE PROGRAM: MARS. After watching Tom Sachs’s movies (online or at the Armory), taking an oral exam, a written exam (as this gentleman is doing), and completing a menial task, visitors are allowed special privileges and access in the exhibit. For more info on prepping for a visit, read 5 Things to Do Before You Go to Mars.
NOTE:Tonight & Sunday will be your final chances to get indoctrinated and to roam free amongst the sculptural installations. Saturday will be a special opportunity to see artist Tom Sachs, astronauts, and Grummans activating every single sculpture in a grueling all-day Endurance Demonstration. Visitors will watch from the civilian viewing areas on Mars and Earth. If you want to bring kids who need to move around, you may want to come tonight or Sunday! SPACE PROGRAM: MARScloses Sunday!
