Brownsville, TX – January 20, 2020 — Joe Steven was featured during the SpaceX “Boca Chica to Mars” Gala on January 18, 2020. The Brownsville Community Foundation in partnership with the Brownsville Museum of Fine Art invites the community to the Boca Chica to Mars exhibit, a photographic chronicle featuring the official photography of SpaceX and various local photographers.

“I’m incredibly excited and honored to have been featured at the SpaceX Boca Chica to Mars Gala,” Joe said. “It’s amazing how people from different walks of life can come together by contributing their talents in such a historic time for humanity.”

“Starship Mission to Mars” is now streaming worldwide on all major streaming services including iTunes, Apple Music, Spotify and Amazon Music. 

The Boca Chica to Mars exhibit opened its doors to the public on January 20, 2020. The exhibit chronicles the journey from simplicity and solitude to eyewitnesses of history self-charged with documentation.

“Here we are, just living our normal lives and the most-watched, most-trending, possibly the most lucrative space industry corporation picks us to launch and test and build their future rockets and we didn’t even know it was coming,” Diane Milliken Garza, executive director for the Brownsville Community Foundation and chairman of Brownsville Arts and Culture who is also the curator of the event, said.

“Here we are, as witnesses to history, this is the trend of our existence right now, of our generation; space and we are here living and watching history in front of us and not many people across the United States are able to be such close eyewitnesses to history.” 

Milliken Garza said part of the exhibit features National Geographic’s coverage of the Space Industry back in Kennedy’s day and it also features photographs of NASA and local photographers. She said the exhibit is about the community coming together to support art.

“I think it’s important for our generation, the baby boomers, and every generation after that to become engaged and that’s what this exhibit is all about,” she said.

Deyanira Ramirez, executive director for the Brownsville Museum of Fine Art, said she hopes the community enjoys the exhibit and learns a little bit more about SpaceX. She said it was very important for curators to also feature photographs through the lenses of local photographers.

“What we want is to serve our community and at the same time attract more tourism to the City of Brownsville,” she said. “We want our community to know a little bit more about what SpaceX is about and also for them to see the quality of the pieces we are exhibiting.”

“Starship Mission to Mars” was recorded at Sunset Studios and mastered by Simon Gibson at Abbey Road Studios in London. Starship is a Super Heavy rocket designed by Space, which serves as a fully reusable transportation system designed to carry both crew and cargo to Earth orbit, the Moon, Mars, and beyond.

SpaceX designs, manufactures and launches advanced rockets and spacecraft. The Space Exploration company was founded in 2002 by Elon Musk.
