Currently on view at the Forest Lawn Museum in Glendale, Syd Mead: Progressions is a retrospective that spans more than 50 years of artwork by legendary visual futurist and Art Center alumnus Syd Mead TRAN ’59.
The exhibition—which includes paintings of everything from extraterrestrial vehicles to interplanetary resort destinations—is a spectacular opportunity to get an up-close-and-personal view of Mead’s work and to appreciate his uncanny ability to translate contemporary concepts into believable visions of the future.
To help celebrate Progressions, Art Center College of Design and Forest Lawn are co-hosting a special presentation at Forest Lawn Museum next Thursday, March 8, from 7–10 p.m. Mead will speak about his work at 8 p.m. and a book signing will immediately follow.
If you’re interested in attending, please RSVP to email@example.com.
Forest Lawn Museum is located at 1712 South Glendale Ave., Glendale, CA 91205.
Head past the jump for a gallery of additional images and the featurette “2019: A Future Imagined,” in which Mead reflects upon the nature of creativity and how it drives the future.
