Syd Mead: Progressions

The Historic Federal Building Galleries | October 23th – December 7th

Kendall presents Syd Mead: Progressions, a captivating exhibit of work by legendary artist Syd Mead. The exhibition, touring the country, is a retrospective of more than 50 years of Mead’s artwork, ranging from selections from his academic years to his most current works. The exhibition will also premiere Mead’s latest painting, Shoulder of Orion, inspired by the famous final words of a character from the iconic science fiction film, Blade Runner.

The “Syd Mead: Progressions” exhibition demonstrates the artist’s uncanny ability to take contemporary concepts and translate them into believable and practical visions of the future, earning him the title of “Visual Futurist.” “Syd Mead: Progressions” includes finished paintings that capture everything from conceptual terrestrial and extraterrestrial vehicles to interplanetary resort destinations.
