WHAT IS YURI’S NIGHT?:
Countdown to Yuri’s Night is an artistic spin on a high-science holiday. On April 12, 1961, Russian Cosmonaut Yuri Gagarin embarked on the historic first manned space flight. Every year around April 12, Yuri’s Night parties are held all around the world; it’s like St. Patrick’s Day or the Fourth of July for space.
Great video featuring my artwork about the event:
