The 40-foot-tall artwork offers a retro-futuristic, highly-stylized vision of space travel circa 1930’s-1940’s science fiction and is the latest in a series of temporary public art exhibitions sponsored by BRAF to enliven and activate public spaces. The sculpture will be accompanied by a companion piece, the Rocket Stop designed by Alan Rorie, which tells the story of the Rocketship’s exploits, providing route, schedule and other information. The installation will be illuminated for nighttime viewing. (Source)
Jeff of Coolorama went to San Francisco and stumbled upon this beauty: The Raygun Gothic Rocketship, a sculpture by Sean Orlando, Nathaniel Taylor, and David Shulman of Black Rock Arts Foundation.
