Vulcan explores the final frontier with its next exhibit at Pivot Art + Culture concept space, Imagined Futures: Science Fiction, Art, and Artifacts from the Paul G. Allen Family Collection. Featuring almost 60 space- and sci-fi-related objects, you can experience the gallery from this Thursday, April 7 through July 10.

Curated by Ben Heywood, Imagined Futures includes multimedia imaginings of space from dozens of artists. Read an excerpt from the press release below for more information:

Imagined Futures features works by Chesley Bonestell, Fred Freeman, John Berkey, Jim Burns, Don Dixon, Bob Eggleton, Chris Foss, Fred Gambino, Ron Miller, Ludek Pesek, Richard Powers, Alex Schomburg, and Tim White, alongside, for the first time, works from other artists inspired by the visualization of the unknown; Ansel Adams, Max Ernst, Robert Longo, René Magritte, Simon Norfolk, Thomas Ruff, and Thomas Struth. In partnership with the Flying Heritage Collection and Living Computer Museum, Imagined Futures will also include artifacts from the history of rocketry and computing.

In our Auxiliary Gallery, we present an installation by Kristina Estell and David Bowen that can transport the viewer across the universe. Titled voyager one, it is created from custom software used to visualize the current location of the Voyager 1 space probe, launched by NASA in 1977.

Tickets are $5 and are perfect for the Trekkie or SpaceX junkie in your life. Use #ImaginedFutures to follow along on social media.
