The Visionary

Astronomy art, The Visionary Theme

Galileo, Marie Curie, Martin Luther King, Dorothy Day, Steve Jobs, Ignatius Loyola. Visionaries imagine what does not yet exist, but might—someday. They often suffer hardship, criticism, and ridicule as others fail to share their visions. What drives the visionary? Necessity, ego, faith, justice, the vision itself? How does the world come to recognize the visionary and eventually come to share in that vision? This theme explores the individuals who have transformed the world with their imagination, courage, and insight.
