Upcoming Exhibits

Community Gallery: March 14 to July 9, 2023 Lowry opened in 1938 along the far western border of Aurora. The base focused on technical training, including aerial photography in its early days, and for a time, was home to the United States Air Force Academy. The exhibit will chronicle the story of Lowry and the people who served there.
