People Helping People: Pilot Bank Executive Forum with Astronaut Nicole Stott

On Aug. 13, Pilot Bank welcomed NASA astronaut and artist Nicole Stott to an Executive Forum event at the Museum of Science & Industry in Tampa, during which Pilot presented a check for $10,000 to MOSI. Stott shared her experience of living and working in space for 104 days and talked about Space for Art, an exhibition of artworks (including some of her own) from the Space for Art Foundation, which uses large-scale community art projects to connect children in hospitals, refugee centers and schools with an interdisciplinary team of art, aerospace, astronaut and health professionals. Masks were encouraged during the event, and individually boxed charcuterie and desserts were provided by Ghada Jadallah of Dash of Salt and Pepper.
