PosterTopic:  Bonestell Documentary.  This documentary reveals that the Golden Gate Bridge, the film "Destination Moon" and America's space program were all part of the remarkable, nine-decade life and legacy of Chesley Bonestell, “The Father of Space Art,” whose paintings still inspire us today.  See:  www.chesleybonestell.com.

Chesley Bonestell’s mesmerizing depiction of “Saturn As Seen From Titan” became known as “the painting that launched a thousand careers.” Told by the many people who were influenced by Chesley Bonestell or knew him personally and punctuated with rare interview footage of the artist himself, this two-time Best Documentary award-winning film compellingly chronicles the life of a quiet, artistic visionary, whose architecture and space art continue to inspire us to reach for the stars.

Guest Speakers: 
Following the screening, a special audience Q&A will take place with Producer/Director/Writer Douglass M. Stewart, Jr., and film participants Rocket Engineer Rocco Lardiere and Photographer Robert E. David.

FREE Admission, open to the public.
