Sun Ra at Space Telescope Science Institute

A friend of mine who works there informs me that there is a painting of Sun Ra in the lobby of the Space Telescope Science Institute (STScI). His description:

"The Sun Ra painting is amongst other paintings mostly of great figures in black history, many rather whimsically done (e.g. a pantheon of political and cultural figures as angels jamming on instruments in heaven). Sun Ra is looking a little distorted, with Saturn behind him, and the slogan "Come Travel the Spaceways" painted across the stars. It really makes coming into work worthwhile..."
