Help sustain a centuries-old process
For hundreds of years, the arts have relied upon the partnership and largesse of individual, government, and corporate sponsors for the means to make artists’ works available for all to see and enjoy. This is especially true for aviation art, which links the experiences and knowledge of aviators and technical specialists with the public at large. Without sponsor support, aviation artists would not have been able to excite and inform industry and the general public to the extent that they have over the past century.
In World War II, aviation art helped focus national purpose and portrayed historic events happening far away. During the Cold War and the Space Race, aerospace art explained new technology and inspired excitement and visionary thinking to the public at large, especially students. As commercial aviation grew to an international industry, aviation art helped introduce this new transportation medium as a safe and friendly way to travel.
