LIMITED EDITION PRINTS
Distant Celebration Collector's Set
by Alan Bean
Celebrate the 50th Anniversary of Apollo 11 and the First Moonwalk
In 2009 the world celebrated the 40th Anniversary of man's first walk on the moon. Apollo Astronaut Alan Bean was the subject of a one-man show at the Smithsonian's National Air and Space Museum featuring forty of Bean's original drawings and paintings from July 16, 2009 until January 13, 2010.
That July, Smithsonian Books published Painting Apollo: First Artist on Another World, to coincide with the 40th anniversary of the Apollo 11 moon landing. The Greenwich Workshop produced this very limited Collectors Edition diptych and signed, slipcased book. Artist Alan Bean's diptych portrays Apollo 11's Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin as they erect and salute the American flag on the surface of the Moon.
