Chesley Bonestell - A Brush With The Future

Event Details

You may never have heard of San Francisco artist Chestley Bonestell, but chances are you’ve seen his work — on magazine covers, in books, or in classic films such as Destination Moon and War of The Worlds.

Long before there were satellites and deep-space telescopes, Bonestell created prescient vistas that dazzled the eyes and the imagination. This 2018 documentary uses rare photos and exclusive footage to probe the vision and vast influence of “The Father of Space Art.”
