Space artist Robert McCall (1919-2010) was known for his ability to bring viewers to unknown places using his limitless imagination. It was this talent that took him beyond his work documenting the real Space Race – and into Hollywood.
McCall designed concept art for movies such as Star Trek: The Motion Picture, Tora! Tora! Tora!, and Disney’s The Black Hole. When legendary filmmaker Stanley Kubrick needed promotional artwork for 2001: A Space Odyssey, he turned to McCall to create posters to advertise the film. McCall at the Movies will highlight the artwork created for these movies and explore their impact on the final films in the intimate space of the Museum’s Art Lab.
