Robert McCall, (1919-2010), came to public attention in the early 1960s as the illustrator for LIFE magazine's memorable series on the future of space travel. At that time, he became one of a few select artists to be chosen for NASA, documenting the progress of American space history, and has been present at nearly every NASA event since.
McCall's heroic artwork is on permanent exhibit at many prestigious institutions including the National Gallery of Art, and he has done murals for the National Air & Space Museum, the Pentagon, EPCOT, and Johnson Space Center.
His work for movies includes the landmark 2001:A Space Odyssey, The Black Hole, Tora! Tora! Tora!, and Star Trek: The Motion Picture. Bob's work has been featured in virtually every popular magazine in the past thirty years.
