STAR TREK ART GALLERY #14
One of the enduring strengths of Star Trek is how it has inspired so many people in
so many fields for decades. The latest example of this is Women Make Trek, a new fan
art initiative bringing artists from around the globe together to pay tribute to the
women of Star Trek.
Women Make Trek:
The new Women Make Trek initiative was put together by artist Laz Marquez known for
popular Star Trek art often shared by cast and crew and Heather Rae, founder of Fans
give back and host of the Fanthropology podcast. According to the pair, it was born
from a mutual love of the Star Trek Universe, art and design, and the incredible
wealth of artistic talent working today who you may or may not be aware of.
The goal of Women Make Trek is to highlight the strength and contributions of the
women who have made Star Trek, in all of its iterations, what it is. The site is run
by fans and for fans and is entirely free. They are not selling any merchandise based
on the artwork, just offering a showcase of artists and their inspiration. They are
also inviting fan artists to submit their work to join the initiative.
