On June 16, 2012, Sachs and his studio team will conduct a real-time Endurance Demonstration of the SPACE PROGRAM: MARS Flight Plan. This singular event provides civilians the extraordinary opportunity to see SPACE PROGRAM: MARS in its entirety, as the team activates every single sculptural system, ritual, and narrative of the journey from Earth to Mars and back again.

The demonstration begins at 12 noon and continues well into the evening. Admission is available throughout the day, and civilians can come and go as they like. Access to the installation will be reserved to special viewing areas. Due to capacity limitations, civilians can anticipate a wait in line for entry, and reentry is not guaranteed. Admission and reentry will close at 11:00pm.

SPACE PROGRAM: MARS is organized by Park Avenue Armory and Creative Time and is curated by Park Avenue Armory Consulting Artistic Director Kristy Edmunds and Creative Time President and Artistic Director Anne Pasternak.
