This year marks the 50th Anniversary of Star Trek, and the latest feature film Star Trek Beyond is just month away. To celebrate this monumental achievement in pop culture an art exhibition, Star Trek: 50 Artists. 50 Years, will launch this July during San Diego Comic Con and will feature stops in Las Vegas, Toronto and the UK.
The exhibition will feature 50 artists from all over the globe, including a work from the late Leonard Nimoy who aside from portraying everyone’s favorite Vulcan science officer, was an accomplished photographer and a prolific patron of the arts. The pieces featured in this exhibition will be gathered in a hardcover book, which is available for preorder now.
For me the standout has to be Tom Whalen’s contribution, U.S.S. Enterprise Spec Sheet (which also happens to be the cover for the book). I’ve long been a fan of Tom Whalen and have had opportunity to meet him several times. Hopefully prints will be available sometime soon, because there is no way that isn’t going in my office.
