In celebration of this year’s 50th anniversary of NASA’s successful Apollo 11 mission, Western Spirit: Scottsdale’s Museum of the West presents Paul Calle’s Life of Exploration: From the Mountains to the Moon. This exhibition shares the rich artistry of Calle’s work documenting epic moments in American history including Neil Armstrong’s first step on the moon, pioneers of the West, Major League Baseball World Series games and portraits of famous people including President John F. Kennedy, General Douglas MacArthur and the Beatles.

The exhibition, on view through Oct. 20, 2020, is among the first to commemorate Apollo 11’s 50th anniversary this year. A quote from Calle in the book Celebrating Apollo 11, The Artwork of Paul Calle, written by his son Chris Calle and published in 2009, can sum up this show.
