 Having recently stepped into the Director role at the Harbor History Museum, I’m proud to say we’re leaping into some great new initiatives for community access and innovative learning. 

First step: MUSEUM LAB (that place every museum lover has been wishing for)

The “Bomber Boys” Exhibit is on the Move!

Having just returned from a special engagement at the Wings Over the Rockies Museum in Denver, Colorado, “Bomber Boys: Portraits From the Front” is available for booking once again.

A tremendous thanks to Wings Over the Rockies Museum in Denver and the Commemorative Air Force Museum in Mesa, Arizona, for hosting “Bomber Boys: Portraits From the Front.” It was a delight to have the show in Mesa, especially for the 57th Bomb Wing Reunion and official ribbon cutting by veterans who flew during World War II.

Know a museum who is looking for a poignant view of World War II with a great literary tie? “Bomber Boys” is available for booking and features 30 portraits of men who served in the 445th Squadron of the 321st Bomb Group, 57th Bomb Wing, 12th Army Air Force stationed in Italy and on Corsica. They are the “real guys” behind the famous novel Catch-22.

Keith B. Lile did his gunnery training at Lowry Field in Colorado. It was his first stop after Basic Training, but wouldn’t be his last.

Interested in learning about the exhibit and its backstory? Check out my Mission 31 Blog Series and the “Bomber Boys” page. This exhibit is scheduled to travel through 2020, the 75th anniversary of the end of World War II. It was created as a special project of my University of Washington Tacoma Methods of Museum Interpretation class.

Many venues require sponsors to be able to host traveling exhibits, so if you’d like to see this exhibit in your local museum, consider being a sponsor. Contact me for details.
