The Yankee Air Museum recently renovated former office space to expand our museum gallery with a dedicated space for artwork!
The new Art Gallery opened in August, 2017, after eight months of work. The Art Gallery provides a quiet, reflective space in the Yankee Air Museum where guests can enjoy aviation, aerospace and history-themed artwork in a serene and contemplative setting. The expanded exhibit space provided by the Art Gallery also serves our museum community by making it possible to display even more artifacts from our collections for the public to enjoy. An estimated one thousand visitors per month stop in to enjoy the new space. Generous support for this exhibit space has been provided by the Michigan Council for Arts & Cultural Affairs and the National Endowment for the Arts.
Currently, our featured Artist is Ron Hart, who studied at the Academy of Art College in San Francisco. Mr. Hart was an airline pilot for 32 years, retiring from American Airlines in December of 2000. During his travels, Ron enjoyed the opportunity to study the masterpieces on display in the world’s finest art museums. After retiring from flying, his artistic expression turned to aviation art.
