The Museum of Flight celebrates Nov. 11 Veterans Day with programs honoring those who have served in the United States Armed Forces, past and present. The celebration will focus on veteran artists and the healing power of the arts.
Events begin at 11 a.m. with live patriotic music by the Boeing Employees Concert Band, followed at noon by a ceremony with keynote speaker Jeffrey Stenbom, an artist and U.S. Army veteran of the Iraq War. Stenbom will further engage Museum visitors during a dialogue about his military experience and his art at 2 p.m.
Museum visitors are also invited to a writing workshop from 1-3 p.m. conducted by the African American Writers Alliance. The workshop, called A Place of Landing, honors ancestors and veterans. The Veterans Day Celebration is also part of the Museum’s six-month Art+Flight project (6/23-1/24).
Museum admission will be free for all veterans and active-duty military (Free admission can only be redeemed on-site, and is not applicable to online sales. Active Duty must present valid I.D.).
