Local artists and veterans collaborate on art exhibit at museum

Boulder-native sisters, Maryanna Wienbroeer Brunkhorst and Melody (Wienbroeer) Huisjen have collaborated on an art and poetry exhibit that shares experiences of USAF veteran Maryanna Brunkhorst. Through her poems and creative non-fiction writing, Maryanna explores everything from a chance encounter with a desert resident while stationed in Kuwait to the emotional impact and honor of service to our country.  These have been interpreted by Melody to inspire visual works of art laden with symbolism and created with watermedia, ink, and ephemera.

The Broomfield Veterans Memorial Museum has the collection on display from January 22-April 21 for their ARTillery series, which invites veterans to creatively engage with their military history.

Veterans Museum Competes in Annual Trivia Contest for Local Rotary Club

On February 22, the Broomfield Veterans Memorial Museum's team participated in the Rotary Club of Broomfield Crossing's Brain Trust Trivia Night. It was the museum's fourth year to participate in the trivia challenge, competing under the team name of G.I. Joes and Janes. Although the museum didn't bring home the trophy this year, their efforts helped support the Rotary Crossing and community programs funded through the Rotary's fundraising.

Congratulations to the winning team, Emily’s Stars, who got 58 right answers out of 81 questions. Proceeds from this benefit event go to the Rotary Club of Broomfield Crossing to eventually fund grants to local non-profits. The veterans museum has been a previous recipient of grants from the Rotary. And if anyone should ask you, “Just what is a group of giraffes called?”, the answer is “a tower.”
