An evening with

On Thursday evening, March 1st, 2001, internationally renowned artist Robert McCall will present a slide showing and discussion of his work at Sedona Creative Life Center from 5:30 – 7:00 PM. 

McCall is famous for his dramatic depictions of the spirit of space exploration in the 20th century and beyond, including his work on the film 2001: A Space Odyssey, as well as on Star Trek and The Black Hole. In addition to being NASA’s visual historian, his work hangs in the Smithsonian Institution’s National Air and Space Museum and has been made into a series of postage stamps.  The event, presented by the Creative Life Center, The Sedona Arts Festival and the Cultural Park, has a $10 per person entry fee that will benefit the Sedona Film Festival’s Workshop Scholarship fund. Tickets can be purchased at the Creative Life Center, the Golden Word bookstore and Crystal Magic bookstore.

McCall’s name has become synonymous with the unbounded potential of humanity’s future among the planets and stars. His documentation of the NASA space program spans more than 35 years, and he has had an observational "front row seat" to the all of the most profound space travel missions of the last century, from the Mercury space flights to the shuttle missions. His six-story Space Mural – A Cosmic View, has been on display at the National Air and Space Museum since 1975.

"The future is bright and filled with promise for us all," says McCall. "And the human spirit, driven as it is with an insatiable desire to know, to explore and to understand, will continue forever to reach upward and outward."

The works of Robert McCall are a rich tapestry that encompasses more than just the history of space exploration and visions of the future. McCall is a talent whose depth and richness of spirit are translated into a special invitation. His work invites one to ride on a spectrum of color, brilliance and imagination – to become part of the twisting kaleidoscope that offers an ever-expanding knowledge of the universe. McCall is an optimist and dreamer, unrestrained by scale, unlimited by location, unconfined by the boundaries of what is known or what can be imagined. He has said that as a very young boy, he drew knights in shining armor. McCall’s boyhood knights have become astronauts and their shining armor that spacecraft that carry them well beyond the stratosphere. Come to the Creative Life Center to meet this inspirational and exciting artist as he presents and discusses his work.
