On July 20, 1969, Neil Armstrong took one small step for a man and a giant
leap for mankind. On November 15, 1969, Alan Bean also set foot on the Moon.
Twenty-five years later, "In the Beginning" was created to celebrate the anniversary.
"I knew that creating a painting to celebrate the twenty-fifth anniversary of the first
lunar landing and the total Apollo program would be difficult," says Bean. "How
does one show in a single painting the dedication, the intensity, the self-sacrifice,
the sense of duty, history and patriotism that engulfed all of us in our quest for the Moon?"

With a little help from his friends, that's how. Just as the Apollo program itself was the
collaboration of many, Bean sought suggestions from fellow astronauts, artists and good
friends before creating this image. The result is this stirring portrait of Neil Armstrong,
the first man on the Moon, celebrating their accomplishment in red, white and blue
while Gene Cernan, the latest moon explorer, gives a friendly wave at the planet
they've temporarily left behind.
