May 15, 2018 marks the 100th anniversary of the world’s first regularly scheduled airmail service. President Wilson was on hand in Washington, DC to watch the historic take off. At first the service only operated between Washington, Philadelphia and New York. By 1920, airmail raced from New York to San Francisco. It was dangerous work. More than 30 pilots died doing their best to fly the mail. Americans recognized the bravery of these Postmen of the Skies, treating them as heroes. In 1927 the Post Office handed off the last of its routes to private contractors, paving the way for what became the nation’s commercial aviation system.

Through personal correspondence written on the frontlines and home front, this centennial exhibition uncovers the history of America’s involvement in World War I.

Exhibition: Fantasy, Sci-Fi and Humor

Thursday, Jan 3, 2019 from 8:00am to 9:00pm

Activity Center at Bohrer Park

506 South Frederick Avenue

Gaithersburg, MD 20877

Website

Exploring the fantasy genre are Tessa Barr, Dan Ellis, David Heatwole, Andrea Kleinbussink, Kelley Phan, and Carol Walsh. Barr’s pieces often originate from her psyche, incorporating universal symbolic imagery and medieval iconography. Ellis’ imaginative works use imagery from fairy tales past and topics in the present. Heatwole enjoys telling stories through his colorful art, which is based in fantasy but also slips into the realms of science fiction and humor. Featured works by Kleinbussink were inspired by songs. Phan’s work has a contemporary style similar to Anime. Walsh uses her photographic talents to interpret fantastical moments using young women as the protagonists in her story lines.
Featured Sci-Fi artists Erik Dillinger, Stephen McDowell and James Russell all take very different approaches to their genre. Dillinger’s imagination is boundless as he creates numerous characters who inhabit futuristic worlds. His work is published in Sci-Fi illustration books and he is currently working on a graphic novel. McDowell, a digital graphic artist, has created an imaginary world where children and large insects roam the land. Russell enjoys rendering representational and beautifully illustrated futuristic cities and outer space transportation vehicles using the traditional means of pencil, pen and color.
Representing the genre of humor are Michael Auger and Goodloe Byron, who both enjoy painting animals with humorous personas. Both artists work in acrylic. Byron’s dinosaur mural project graces the walkway behind Brewer’s Alley restaurant in Frederick, MD.

Activity Center at Bohrer Park

506 South Frederick Avenue

Gaithersburg, MD 20877

Website

Exploring the fantasy genre are Tessa Barr, Dan Ellis, David Heatwole, Andrea Kleinbussink, Kelley Phan, and Carol Walsh. Barr’s pieces often originate from her psyche, incorporating universal symbolic imagery and medieval iconography. Ellis’ imaginative works use imagery from fairy tales past and topics in the present. Heatwole enjoys telling stories through his colorful art, which is based in fantasy but also slips into the realms of science fiction and humor. Featured works by Kleinbussink were inspired by songs. Phan’s work has a contemporary style similar to Anime. Walsh uses her photographic talents to interpret fantastical moments using young women as the protagonists in her story lines.
Featured Sci-Fi artists Erik Dillinger, Stephen McDowell and James Russell all take very different approaches to their genre. Dillinger’s imagination is boundless as he creates numerous characters who inhabit futuristic worlds. His work is published in Sci-Fi illustration books and he is currently working on a graphic novel. McDowell, a digital graphic artist, has created an imaginary world where children and large insects roam the land. Russell enjoys rendering representational and beautifully illustrated futuristic cities and outer space transportation vehicles using the traditional means of pencil, pen and color.
Representing the genre of humor are Michael Auger and Goodloe Byron, who both enjoy painting animals with humorous personas. Both artists work in acrylic. Byron’s dinosaur mural project graces the walkway behind Brewer’s Alley restaurant in Frederick, MD.

May 15, 2018 marks the 100th anniversary of the world’s first regularly scheduled airmail service. President Wilson was on hand in Washington, DC to watch the historic take off. At first the service only operated between Washington, Philadelphia and New York. By 1920, airmail raced from New York to San Francisco. It was dangerous work. More than 30 pilots died doing their best to fly the mail. Americans recognized the bravery of these Postmen of the Skies, treating them as heroes. In 1927 the Post Office handed off the last of its routes to private contractors, paving the way for what became the nation’s commercial aviation system.

My Fellow Soldiers: Letters from World War I

Venue: National Postal Museum

Address:

2 Massachusetts Avenue,North East

Washington, DC 20002

Cost: Free

From: National Postal Museum

Through personal correspondence written on the frontlines and home front, this centennial exhibition uncovers the history of America’s involvement in World War I. The compelling selection of letters illuminates emotions and thoughts engendered by the war that brought America onto the world stage; raised complex questions about gender, race and ethnic relations; and ushered in the modern era. Included are previously unpublished letters by General John Pershing, the general who led the American Expeditionary Forces and a person who understood the power of the medium. In his postwar letter that begins “My fellow soldiers,” he recognized each individual under his command for bravery and service. My Fellow Soldiers: Letters from World War I was created by the Smithsonian’s National Postal Museum in collaboration with the Center for American War Letters at Chapman University. Open 10:00 a.m. – 5:30 p.m. daily

May 15, 2018 marks the 100th anniversary of the world’s first regularly scheduled airmail service. President Wilson was on hand in Washington, DC to watch the historic take off. At first the service only operated between Washington, Philadelphia and New York. By 1920, airmail raced from New York to San Francisco. It was dangerous work. More than 30 pilots died doing their best to fly the mail. Americans recognized the bravery of these Postmen of the Skies, treating them as heroes. In 1927 the Post Office handed off the last of its routes to private contractors, paving the way for what became the nation’s commercial aviation system.

Museum Hours:
Open daily 10 a.m. – 5:30 p.m

Through personal correspondence written on the frontlines and home front, this centennial exhibition uncovers the history of America’s involvement in World War I. The compelling selection of letters illuminates emotions and thoughts engendered by the war that brought America onto the world stage; raised complex questions about gender, race and ethnic relations; and ushered in the modern era. Included are previously unpublished letters by General John Pershing, the general who led the American Expeditionary Forces and a person who understood the power of the medium. In his postwar letter that begins “My fellow soldiers,” he recognized each individual under his command for bravery and service. My Fellow Soldiers: Letters from World War I was created by the Smithsonian’s National Postal Museum in collaboration with the Center for American War Letters at Chapman University. Open 10:00 a.m. – 5:30 p.m. daily

Monday – Sunday from 10:00 am – 5:30 pm

May 15, 2018 marks the 100th anniversary of the world’s first regularly scheduled airmail service. President Wilson was on hand in Washington, DC to watch the historic take off. At first the service only operated between Washington, Philadelphia and New York. By 1920, airmail raced from New York to San Francisco. It was dangerous work. More than 30 pilots died doing their best to fly the mail. Americans recognized the bravery of these Postmen of the Skies, treating them as heroes. In 1927 the Post Office handed off the last of its routes to private contractors, paving the way for what became the nation’s commercial aviation system.

Through personal correspondence written on the frontlines and home front, this centennial exhibition uncovers the history of America’s involvement in World War I. The compelling selection of letters illuminates emotions and thoughts engendered by the war that brought America onto the world stage; raised complex questions about gender, race and ethnic relations; and ushered in the modern era. Included are previously unpublished letters by General John Pershing, the general who led the American Expeditionary Forces and a person who understood the power of the medium. In his postwar letter that begins “My fellow soldiers,” he recognized each individual under his command for bravery and service. My Fellow Soldiers: Letters from World War I was created by the Smithsonian’s National Postal Museum in collaboration with the Center for American War Letters at Chapman University. Open 10:00 a.m. – 5:30 p.m. daily

Join us on the Dunn-Wildlake Preserve as we hike out to Flat Top Peak for an early picnic dinner during sunset and moonrise. The views will be amazing, making this a great photo opportunity; tripods can be helpful for taking pictures in low light. We will hike back in the dark, which adds an extra challenge as the trail is rough in spots, so wear hiking boots with adequate tread and ankle support and consider a walking stick. Bring: water and dinner as we will begin our hike in the afternoon and will be out well into the evening. Required: a flashlight or headlamp.

The compelling selection of letters illuminates emotions and thoughts engendered by the war that brought America onto the world stage; raised complex questions about gender, race and ethnic relations; and ushered in the modern era. Included are previously unpublished letters by General John Pershing, the general who led the American Expeditionary Forces and a person who understood the power of the medium. In his postwar letter that begins “My fellow soldiers,” he recognized each individual under his command for bravery and service. My Fellow Soldiers: Letters from World War I was created by the Smithsonian’s National Postal Museum in collaboration with the Center for American War Letters at Chapman University. Open 10:00 a.m. – 5:30 p.m. daily

May 15, 2018 marks the 100th anniversary of the world’s first regularly scheduled airmail service. President Wilson was on hand in Washington, DC to watch the historic take off. At first the service only operated between Washington, Philadelphia and New York. By 1920, airmail raced from New York to San Francisco. It was dangerous work. More than 30 pilots died doing their best to fly the mail. Americans recognized the bravery of these Postmen of the Skies, treating them as heroes. In 1927 the Post Office handed off the last of its routes to private contractors, paving the way for what became the nation’s commercial aviation system.
