Painters, potters, sculptors, glass blowers and wood carvers will be among exhibitors at an arts and crafts fair benefiting the Jet Propulsion Laboratory/Caltech Child Educational Center.

Scheduled October 18-20, the fair will feature more than 90 booths as well as live entertainment, hot food, baked goods and children's activities. Multimedia shows on JPL's unmanned space program will be screened, and spacecraft models will be on display.
