Imaging Women in the Space Age is an exploration of women as aviators and astronauts in fashion, television, pop culture and beyond. Among the women highlighted are Sally Ride; Mae Jemison, the first African-American female astronaut; and Ellen Ochoa, the first Hispanic woman in space. The exhibit also delves into the role of fictional women in space, featuring Barbarella's Jane Fonda and Gravity's Sandra Bullock as well as Lego and Barbie astronaut dolls. Pucci's colorful designs for Braniff Airlines flight attendants are on hand as well.
