‘2001: A Space Odyssey’ artist’s career launched at CCAD
We call him an alum.
The renowned illustrator was official artist for NASA, for which he created mission patches, artist concepts, and murals. He also painted movie posters for the 1968 science fiction film 2001: A Space Odyssey, which this year celebrates its 50th anniversary.
To mark the occasion, the Gateway Film Center in Columbus will screen a 70mm print of 2001 on Friday, June 16 – Tuesday, June 26.
McCall, who died in February 2010 at age 90, was awarded an honorary Doctor of Visual Arts degree from CCAD in 1998. He graduated in 1939 from what was then known as the Columbus Art School.
