Honor Flight ArtShow 2017


They say a picture is worth a thousand words.

We also think it can be worth a thousand Thanks.

Since our first flight in November of 2008, Stars and Stripes Honor Flight has taken thousands of WWII veterans and guardians on a one day trip to Washington D.C. Each trip producing countless stories, smiles, tears and cheers. We decided the best way to tell the Honor Flight story is to let you walk the chronology of an Honor Flight trip. We have curated our best, most moving images (about 120 of them!) into this traveling art show. For the rest of the year, this collection will be on display at locations throughout southeast Wisconsin. We hope you will find a location near you and take some time to experience the Stars and Stripes Honor Flight journey.  If you are interested in hosting the art show please fill out the web form on the Invite Us To An Event page.

From: Brian Hofmeister <>

Hey Artists,

The Muskego Circle and Lakepoint Church won't be putting on the art show this Fall like we did last year.

However, I did just receive a message from Delafield's Chamber of Commerce if you're interested in linking up with their Art Walk.

Keep Creating!

Brian Hofmeister
