Paschal Grad, Astronaut/Painter Al Bean
Painter, Paschal High School alum, and retired astronaut Al Bean will be exhibiting some of his work this month at the Smithsonian Air and Space Museum. Though the 77-year-old’s work isn’t challenging, he isn’t a hobbyist. He’s a bona fide painter, with a cartoonish, light-hearted touch and a keen eye for color. A book of the exhibited works will accompany the exhibit.
