The New Museum Los Gatos is hosting an exhibition about airships.
Giants in the Sky | The Rise and Fall of Airships will be a multimedia, interactive exposition including contemporary artwork, vintage photographs, artifacts, memorabilia, and video.
The museum is located in Silicon Valley near San Jose and Moffett Field, home to the American naval airship U.S.S. Macon.
Among the educational programs will be a talk by my good friend and colleague Dr. Cheryl Ganz, the recently-retired Chief Curator of Philately of the Smithsonian’s National Postal Museum, who is one of the world’s leading experts on airship history. The date has not been announced.
The New Museum Los Gatos is, literally, a new museum; it opens to the public for the first time on Saturday, June 6, 2015.
I hope the large passenger air ships return to the sky. Then, I’ll book a flight and raise a glass to the Count Zeppelin, Dr. Eckener and all those who kept the dream alive!
Wonderful! Let us know the date of Cheryl’s talk when it becomes available.
Everybody should stop by and see this museum. What a great opportunity to learn about the World’s wonderful Airship History. The Mighty Passenger Zeppelins may well rise again providing safety, private staterooms, gourmet meals, live entertainment and spectacular scenic opportunities from high in the sky.
Look forward to the day. Then, I shall make sure I book a flight. As soon as drinks are served, I’ll raise a glass to the Count Zeppelin, Dr. Eckener and all those who kept the dream alive!
