A new Star Trek art exhibit entitled “Star Trek: 50 Artists. 50 Years” will feature Trek-themed art pieces by 50 artists from 10 countries around the world and will include a photographic tribute to Mr. Spock by the late Leonard Nimoy.
Nimoy’s piece will be officially unveiled at the Michael J. Wolf Gallery in San Diego during this summer’s San Diego Comic-Con. Shortly thereafter, you’ll be able to catch the exhibit in Las Vegas at the big Creation Con in early August, the Canadian National Exhibition in Toronto in mid-August, and Destination Star Trek Europe in the UK in October. The exhibit will be traveling through August 2017.
Nimoy’s photographic work features a colored image of Nimoy’s own hand poised in a Vulcan salute.
In addition to Nimoy’s Spock tribute, “Star Trek: 50 Artists. 50 Years.” will feature posters, sculptures, digital paintings, and more.
“Home Is Where The Journey Is,” pictured below, is a sculpture contribution by artist Calvin Ma who hails from Starfleet’s home town of San Francisco.
The US Postal Service will be showing off its 50th Anniversary Star Trek stamps designed by The Heads of State and unveiled last December.
Keep an eye on StarTrek50Art.com in the coming weeks for ongoing reveals of other pieces in the exhibit.
Thumb out for the Vulcan salute, just as it should be!
Damn I miss Leonard. Following him on Twitter was a delight every time he tweeted, it just made me feel good to know he was around.
Nice – though no post for Shatner’s 85th birthday? It is a big one!
