Description

Film screening of a feature-length documentary on the life of space artist Chesley Bonestell. Co-sponsored and hosted by MRIGlobal.

What do the Chrysler Building, the Golden Gate Bridge, the film Destination Moon and America’s space program all have in common? They were each touched by the creative vision of a artist Chesley Bonestell (1888-1986). His legendary depiction of “Saturn As Seen From Titan” became known as “the painting that launched a thousand careers.” Told by the people who were influenced by or knew Chesley personally, as well as Chesley himself, this film chronicles the remarkable nine-decade life of a quiet, artistic visionary, whose beautiful paintings helped inspire America’s space program.

A 30-minute Q&A with Douglass M. Stewart, Jr., the film's writer, producer, and director, will follow the screening. MRIGlobal's collection of eight orignial Bonestell paintings will also be on display during the event.
