About artist Chris Calle:
During his 20+ years as an illustrator and today, much of his artwork is related to the theme of Space Exploration. As an official NASA artist, Chris covered two of the early Space Shuttle missions, producing artwork that is now in the collections of the National Air and Space Museum and NASA. In 1962 Chris’s father Paul Calle was one of the original 8 artists chosen by NASA to document the final mission of Project Mercury. Paul then covered the Gemini and Apollo programs.
Chris is the author of Celebrating Apollo 11, the Artwork of Paul Calle, which details Calle’s involvement in the NASA Fine Art Program and focuses on the on-the-spot artwork Paul created as the only artist present during the suiting up of the Apollo 11 crew on their historic launch to the Moon.
