Florida Artist's Work Sent Into Space -- posted by Florida Fine Art Blog

Wow, three of my favorite things in one story. Florida Art, NASA and Children's Charities.   Port Charlotte glass artist Terri Fout has been making glass beads for Children's Charities. The beads are given as "beads of courage" to mark special milestones for kids fighting cancer .  NASA has decided to take some of the beads up into space on one of the Space Shuttles last missions so the children know that “Astronauts in space were thinking of them and their journeys.”  What a great cause.
