Is Anyone Out There? reminds us that over a four year period, from 1968 to 1972, nine Apollo missions set out, and 12 men – none of them twice – walked on the moon’s surface. Alan Bean, the fourth man to walk on the moon, is the only one to have transposed his experience to canvas, enabling all of us, in some way, to experience what he has seen.
n addition to being the Lunar Module Pilot of Apollo XII, Alan Bean served as commander of Skylab Mission II, during which time he spent 59 days orbiting Earth. Images of the blue planet from space are also a major feature of Bean’s art.
Is Anyone Out There? asks the question we still ask, many years later, as we look at the moon and the stars from our earthly home. When you purchase a piece by Alan Bean you can imagine that you are actually on the moon. Bean has a way of making you feel a part of the picture, but also inspire you to follow your dreams. Anything is possible in life, and why shouldn’t walking on the moon be one of them?
