Tuesday, April 16, 2013 | 11:00 AM - 5:00 PM   
TORRANCE ART MUSEUM 3320 Civic Center Drive
These days potential catastrophes are everywhere you look. You can’t go outside or turn on the TV without reports of the world coming to an ‘End’ - global climate collapsing or terrorists planning new attacks. The world is so full of danger, threats, stress, overload and insecurity. Assuming that we, against all odds, survive the terrifying pitfalls of the future, is creativity going to be the thing that saves us? Will our imagination become an escape route, a place where we can hide, or will it be the one thing that forcefully confronts us with the truth and gives us the strength needed to make a change? What kind of art would a generation of unlikely survivors produce and where would they find their inspiration? What influence would surviving a catastrophe have on our values, ethics and our perception of truth and how might this situation visualize itself in the art of the future? This pressure coming from a hyper tense society of doom is having a massive impact on the art being produced by the artists who manage to keep up their practice and it is forcing others to remain passive or paralyzed while waiting for a change of current that may never come.

Western Museum of Flight (3315 Airport Dr. Torrance)
Before the video game, before the Bruce Willis movie there was an Armageddon. Specifically, the fighters of Armageddon. An elite, specially trained force of fighter pilots capable and prepared to detonate tactical nuclear weapons deep inside Soviet-held territory. The pilots who could penetrate deep into enemy territory, evade air defenses and deliver weapons precisely on target. Pilots with the iron resolve should the chilling order come down from National Command Authority to quickly man his aircraft, fly to his target without hesitation. The adversary had to know, with absolute certainty, that if they took the fatal step of starting World War III, the retaliation wrought upon them would be swift, certain, and devastating. The Western Museum of Flight (WMoF) WMoF Celebrity Series presents one of these exceptional war fighters Lieutenant Colonel Don Oldis. He and fellow pilots knew every day they might be called upon to fly what amounted to a suicide mission yet he and his comrades stood ready, held that vital front line, and, in retrospect, provided the deterrence that finally proved to be both effective and victorious. So join us, while Lt. Col. Oldis shares some stories from that historic era, as well as his experiences as a combat pilot in WWII, Korea, and Vietnam. As always, WMoF Members are free; non-members are $5, which also includes access to WMoF museum exhibits. Free parking. Enjoy the Celebrity Series? Why not support the WMoF with an annual membership (wmof.com/newmem.htm). The annual membership gives you one-year unlimited FREE admission to the WMoF museum, all the Celebrity Series Lectures, Quarterly Newsletters, access to the research library and access to Special Events.
