POUGHKEEPSIE, N.Y. -- An exhibition at Vassar College in Poughkeepsie featuring the works of 19 artists tries to take on the mysteries of the universe. 

The New York Times reviews the exhibition, "Touch the Sky: Art and Astronomy," saying of the show, "All of the works challenge visitors to the museum to reconsider, and perhaps expand, their conceptions of the cosmos."

A large figure of astronaut Gordon Cooper is part of the exhibition at the Frances Lehman Loeb Art Center, said The New York Times.

Cooper, among seven astronauts in the Project Mercury first manned U.S. space mission, is portrayed in a mural by Mungo Thompson at the gallery's entrance, according to the newspaper.

"Touch the Sky" features 51 works of 19 artists, addressing "the awe-inspiring mysteries of the universe," said The New York Times.

Among various "approaches, on a spectrum from factual to imaginary" are works created in paint, pencil, printmaking, video, photo techniques "and a bit of powdered cocaine," said the report.
