A 128-page companion book is also available for $49.95 CDN (~ $44 USD), featuring the work of all 76 artists.
Shatner has personally endorsed the project by saying, "Every artist has their muse. Leonardo was inspired by the ceiling in the great chapel. Michelangelo found his art in the Italian marble. Who am I to stand in the way of all these fine artists and artisans who want to use my lumpy, aging face for inspiration? Some creators love a great sunset; some have in mind my bloodshot eyes. Nevertheless, out of awe, amusement, or pity, you should come and see this unique show."
UPPERCASE Gallery is located on the upper floor of Art Central at the corner of 7th Avenue SW and Center Street in Calgary.
