North Coast Honor Flight and the Eureka Symphony invite you to an evening of music and art honoring our Humboldt County WWII veterans at The Arkley Center on November 12, the day following Veterans Day, at 5:30pm. Musical director Carol Jacobson has selected a program of moving American music, including Our Town, by American composer Aaron Copland. Also featured will be portraits of the veterans by Trinidad artist, Kathrin Burleson, co-founder of North Coast Honor Flight. A reception following the concert will be hosted by Redwood Capital Bank. Don’t miss this opportunity to celebrate and pay tribute to these American heroes.
Admission is $12 for adults and $5 for children.
Kathrin has been working on these portraits for nearly a year and has completed over 90. Her goal is to draw every WWII vet in Humboldt County, whether they have been on Honor Flight or not. If you know of a vet who has not been included, please contact Kathrin at 677-0490.
Kathrin is collaborating with Lynda Moore and Margot Genger, producer of the North Coast Honor Flight Video Project, on a book that will feature the drawings along with interviews of the veterans. There will also be an exhibit of the drawings at the Morris Graves Museum of Art in the fall of next year. A permanent home for the collection is now being explored.
