Art Awareness

Come See What You’ve Been Missing

Rich in history and art, the museum demonstrates the heroism and fortitude with which airborne and special operation soldiers have historically operated, and we invite all  to the museum to experience these things for yourselves.

Statues and Monuments: Art Awareness Outside on the Museum Grounds

Erected outside of the museum are monuments and statues that pay tribute to those whom they were meant to recognize. The John Koenig Memorial Walkway and Fritz Healy Memorial Walkway that line the Parade Field feature a statue of General Hugh Shelton, created by Paul Moore and commissioned by Ross Perot. The SOF K9 Memorial, the only memorial of its kind in the world, stands guard over the Iron Mike Statue, both, respectively, tributes to paratroopers past, present, and future and the canines who stood beside them.

In addition to dioramas, artifacts and aircraft, the ASOM features artwork throughout the museum grounds. Inside, visitors will see busts of the airborne and special operations community legends, Colonel Aaron Bank and General William Yarborough.  Throughout the museum, original Propaganda Posters of World War II may be seen as all other works of art scattered throughout the building. The occasional temporary focus exhibits feature original pieces of art work not normally on display. Past exhibits include original works by renowned artists James Dietz and Felix de Weldon, and there are more planned for the future.
