Star Trek Exhibit at St. Louis Science Center Welcomes Makeup Artist Jeff Lewis

By Carmelo Turdo
The St. Louis Science Center welcomed Emmy Award nominated and Illinois native makeup artist Jeff Lewis to speak at this month's First Friday event supporting Star Trek: The Exhibition.  Mr. Lewis visited with a media round table prior to his public presentation to a large crowd in the auditorium, and gave a "makeover" to an audience member after a brief presentation of his life behind the scenes creating Star Trek characters.  You can see some of his characters in Star Trek: Deep Space Nine, Star Trek: Voyager, Star Trek Insurrection, Star Trek: Nemesis, and Star Trek: Enterprise among many other productions.  Examples of these and other characters from Star Trek can be seen within the exhibit.  Mr. Lewis has just begun another series on MTV called Teen Wolf (you guessed it, werewolf characters need lots of makeup).  Here are some pictures and video clips of our visit with Jeff Lewis:
