Robert McCall, (1919-2010) came to public attention in the early 1960s as the illustrator for LIFE magazine’s series on the future of space travel. At that time, he became one of a few artists to be chosen for NASA to document the progress of American space history. His work is on permanent exhibit at the National Gallery of Art, and he has done murals for the National Air & Space Museum, the Pentagon, and Johnson Space Center.

His murals for the Horizons pavilion at Epcot — views of the future human settlements Nova Cite, Brava Centuari, and Sea Castle, as well as the optimistic “The Prologue and the Promise” in the exit area—were especially beloved.
