Reaching For The Stars

Owning a Piece of History: Possibly not since the Declaration of Independence have two dozen great American heroes joined together to countersign and create such a historically significant work of art. In October, 1997, the astronauts came together for three reasons: to declare the expansion and renovation of the Astronaut Hall of Fame, to celebrate the induction of Apollo-era astronauts to the Hall (with Walter Cronkite as emcee) and to countersign Reaching for the Stars—specifically created to commemorate this once-in-a-lifetime event. the personal and individual signatures of each astronaut are written on the textured surface of this special, superior-quality canvas.
  • Reaching for the Stars is one of the most fascinating and important records of the exploration of space you could possibly own.
  • Counter-signers: Buzz Aldrin (Gemini 12 & Apollo 11) Alan L. Bean (Apollo 12 & Skylab 3) M. Scott Carpenter (Mercury 7) Gerald P. Carr (Skylab 4) Charles "Pete" Conrad (Gemini 5 & Gemini 11, Apollo 12, Skylab 3) L. Gordon Cooper, Jr. (Mercury 9) Walter Cunningham (Apollo 7) Charles M. Duke, Jr. (Apollo 16) Owen K. Garriott (Skylab 3) Edward G. Gibson (Skylab 4) John H. Glenn, Jr. (Mercury 6) Richard F. Gordon, Jr. (Gemini 11 & Apollo 12) Fred W. Haise, Jr. (Apollo 13) James A. Lovell (Gemini 12 & Apollo 8 & Apollo 13) Jack R. Lousma (Skylab 3) James A. McDivitt (Gemini 4 & Apollo 9) Edgar D. Mitchell (Apollo 14) William R. Pogue (Skylab 4) Walter M Schirra, Jr. (Gemini 6, Mercury 9, Apollo 7) Russell L. Schweickart (Apollo 9) Alan B. Shepard, Jr. (Mercury 3 & Apollo 14) Thomas P. Stafford (Gemini 6, 9, Apollo 10 & Apollo-Soyuz) Paul J. Weitz (Skylab 2) Alfred M. Worden (Apollo 15)
  • Reaching for the Stars was created for the rotunda of the U.S. Astronaut Hall of Fame as an inspirational mural. In his work of art, you can actually feel and see the vestiges of lunar exploration. Just as with his original, your canvas features Alan Bean’’s trademark “moonprints” of authentic lunar boots, impressions from a core tube-bit used to collect lunar soil samples and marks from a hammer used to drive the staff of the American flag into the Moon’’s surface.
  • Meticulously produced over a five months period, this textured canvas faithfully recreates the look and feel of the original painting—including the artist’’s brush strokes—using a state-of-the-art combination of technological, artistic and craftsmanship skills. No other reproduction process compares in quality and value. The resulting fine art canvas is as close as you will come to owning the original work of art.
  • Custom Framing Available
  • Image size: 27"w x 34"h. Limited Edition of: 1500
