Chesley Bonestell: A Brush with the Future
August 25 @ 2:00 pm - 3:30 pmFREE with Museum admission
San Diego Comic-Con 2018 winner for Best Documentary, “Chesley Bonestell: A Brush with the Future,” is showing at The Museum of Flight on August 25!
FREE with Museum admission!
Come see the amazing story of Chesley Bonestell, a forgotten artist who worked on the Chrysler Building, the Golden Gate Bridge, movies like “Destination Moon,” and then helped inspire America’s space program with his futuristic paintings. His mesmerizing 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, and punctuated with rare interview with Chesley himself, this documentary chronicles the extraordinary, nine-decade life of a quiet, artistic visionary, whose beautiful paintings continue to inspire us to reach for the stars.
