Participating Artists - Frank Lurz
Born in 1942, Frank Lurz grew up with the V2 rocket, Sputnik and Project Mercury; read the novels, hot off the presses, of Heinlein, Asimov and Bradbury; and saw "The Thing," "When Worlds Collide," "War of the Worlds," and "Them" when they premiered on the silver screen. It was the golden age of science fiction and in his mind's eye Lurz saw the work that lay before him. Mostly self-taught, he began drawing and painting in grammar school. A long hiatus intervened during his days in graduate school and later, those spent in anaesthesia research at U.C. San Francisco, but he returned to painting in the 1980s and has been showing at science fiction conventions ever since. Lurz is a veteran, two-term past president of Vietnam Veterans of America's Chapter 547, and a member of the Italian Fencing Masters Association.
