10/13/2023 at 10:00 AM to 5:00 PM

Event Description

A member-only preview of the new exhibition World War II: Stories from the American Experience.

How do the stories of the Second World War live on from generation to generation? This exhibit shares rare artifacts and the very personal memories of those who owned them. Explore the three theaters of operation: Europe, the Pacific, and the Home Front through over 100 artifacts and images from the collection of historian, Ryan Lowry.

Members can also preview the new exhibition Wings of History, World War II Aviation Art of John D. Shaw. 

Military Aviation artist John Shaw features America’s heroes of the Air in WWII through his dramatic paintings. This exhibit features custom-embellished canvas reproductions of many of Shaw’s World War II scenes, arranged chronologically from 1941 through the war’s end in 1945.

Open only to MOAS Members.
