Veterans Remembrance World War II Exhibit

From August  11 , 2019, through November  11 , 2019, the Dana Adobe Cultural Center will be showcasing “Veterans Remembrance World War II” Exhibit. Featuring the paintings by renowned local watercolor artist, Milford Zornes, who was a Nipomo resident and official artist for the US Military during WWII.

This exhibit will also feature Millard Sheets who was an artist-correspondent for Life and the United States Army Air Forces in India and Burma during World War II.

The exhibit will also include various WWII Memorabilia including uniforms, weapons, equipment, and  a WWII era Jeeep. Also on display will be the  Nipomo Honor Roll. The Nipomo Honor Roll was a sign that hung in the Nipomo post office listing all the residents of Nipomo who had served in WWII. Our exhibit team has spent countless hours researching all the  people listed on the Honor Roll and have compiled information on many of them. This  exhibit is one you don’t want to miss!

The exhibit will be open to the public daily from 11 AM to 3 PM at the Dana Adobe Cultural Center in Nipomo. Admission is $5 per person.

For more information, call (805) 929-5679.

The work of Millford Zornes is made possible by the generosity of Maria and Hal Baker, Milford’s daughter, and son-in-law, and curated by Shirley Horacek  with help from the DANA exhibit committee.
