Imagined Futures:
Science Fiction, Art, and Artifacts from the Paul G. Allen Family Collection
Drawn from the Paul G. Allen Family Collection, Imagined Futures explores the visualization of new space frontiers through works of art by modern masters of the speculative and fantastic. Combining the mysterious worlds of the imagination with the hard realities of technology, and engineering, these artists take the majesty and wonder of the universe as their inspiration, addressing the challenges of imagining the multiple realities of the unknown.

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.
