The Greenwich Workshop has organized a touring exhibit of Apollo 12 moonwalker Alan Bean's paintings. The Alan Bean Traveling Show launches this Thursday (September 28) in Wakeeney, Kansas at the Elk Dreamer Gallery. From The Hutchinson News:
Artwork created by astronaut Alan Bean will be featured from Thursday through Oct. 8 at the Elk Dreamer Gallery in WaKeeney.

Bean, the fourth man to walk on the moon, also is a renowned artist. His paintings are inspired by his travels and work in space, including a 59-day flight as commander of Skylab Mission II.

His traveling art show is being presented courtesy of the Greenwhich Workshop, located in Seymour, Conn. The show is the first stop of his art's cross-country tour.

A schedule for The Alan Bean Traveling Show through February 2007 is available on The Greenwich Workshop website or via our own event calendar.

There is no indication (yet) if Alan Bean will make appearances at any or all of the tour stops.

I had the pleasure of seeing Alan Bean's art last fall in Ohio and must say that if you have a chance to see several items in person the trip is worth it. Standing in front of the works is vastly different than seeing them online or through prints.

And all for the right reasons...

Mark, I was with at the show and I agree with your assessment. They are wonderful to view in person.

I did write a quick review of the show.

It was just a taste of what the Bean exhibition was like. I highly recommmend that anybody who enjoys space exploration should visit this traveling exhibit.
