Together, they have created a fine art exhibition, entitled “Portraits of Flight: Celebrating 100 Years of American Naval Aviation, 1911–2011.” Intrepid’s newest exhibit features 24 paintings by ASAA artists and tells the story of the early trials, advancements, and accomplishments of the US Navy from 1911 to the present.
