May the Fourth Be With You.

No one captured the thrill of space exploration quite like artist Robert McCall, a major figure in the University of Arizona Museum of Art collection.

For more than 60 years, McCall chronicled the history of aviation, science and space flight and shared his vision with the world. His 35-year relationship with NASA gave Americans a view of its presence in space in ways never before imagined.

In addition to being a visual historian for NASA, McCall served as a conceptual artist for the entertainment industry. He painted the poster art for Stanley Kubrick's classic, "2001: A Space Odyssey."

He has been an inspiration to generations of astronomers, engineers, and astronauts and a model for young artists, designers and illustrators.

In 2007, McCall made the founding donation of 200 original paintings and drawings to UAMA, which helped establish UAMA’s Archive of Visual Arts.
