The Wichita Falls Alliance for Arts and Culture was proud to support Sheppard Air Force Base for the 2024 Guardians of Freedom Air Show.

The Alliance commissioned Wichita Falls Artist Fuago to create a patriotic mural on a canopy removed from an A-10C Thunderbolt II. The canopy was displayed at the Air Show’s entry.

Air Show Arts Activity!

The Wichita Falls Alliance for Arts and Culture hosted a booth at the Air Show at Sheppard Air Force Base. Teaching artist Ramona Stegal and MSU Fain Fine Arts Students Eli Coker and Hailey Padilha provided a hands-on arts activity for families attending the air show. Young artists were encouraged to design a plane inspired by the aircraft they saw on base that day. These photos were submitted by young artists and their family.
