APRIL 2, 2014, SUN ‘n FUN Airshow, Lakeland Florida: The First Annual “Dinner With Legends” banquet benefiting the Aerospace Center For Excellence will be held during the 2014 SUN ‘n FUN International Fly-In & Expo in Lakeland, FL. This event will be providing the opportunity for guests to participate in a silent auction augmenting the evening with fine art, collectibles, and autographed memorabilia from the Legends in attendance.
The latest and most significant artwork in the Steven Greenwald Design aviation collection titled "MILESTONES" by artist Frank Martin will be offered at the auction. SUN ‘n FUN is channeling all proceeds from the auction of this painting to support Think Global Flight, an around the world flight of adventure promoting education and inspiring students.
This 60 x 30 inch mixed media painting features science, technology, engineering and mathematics while chronicling the aircraft, flights and events of the past 110 years. With over 49 differing elements involved, it is the most complex and detailed work ever done by Frank Martin. In addition, the painting will be signed by the artist, Think Global Flight Captain Judy Rice, Navigator Fred Nauer, and Think Global Flight Ambassadors Astronaut Dr. Buzz Aldrin, Voyager Pilot Dick Rutan, and Tuskegee Airman Charles McGee.
The artwork was inspired during a number of conversations between Frank and Judy during and after the Living Legends of Aviation celebration in Beverly Hills this past January. They spoke of the need for a return to the Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (S.T.E.M.) education philosophy and Captain Judy Rice's upcoming around the world flight. Both Frank and Judy grew up when S.T.E.M. were taught throughout all levels of education whose lives have been positively shaped by this experience. SUN ‘n FUN is a proud sponsor of Captain Rice and Think Global Flight in their shared mission to create “A Brighter Future Through Aviation.”
