Westchester Women and War Portraits

Westchester Women and War Portraits

On June 13th, I had the honor of being in attendance for the opening event of Westchester Women and War: Portraits at the Hudson River Museum in Yonkers, NY. The exhibit, which is running from now until September 9th, honors the local women who served our country proudly in World War II. The women who were serving from Westchester County sat for paintings done by Francis Vandeveer Kughler nearly 70 years ago, and these have been brought out of storage and displayed for all to view. There are also photographs of female soldiers and veterans who proudly serve our country today. For some further information on the exhibit read the Journal News article on the exhibit.   

This is a wonderful piece of history for people of all ages. Head to the Hudson River Museum located on 511 Warburton Ave, Yonkers, NY on Wednesday- Sunday from 12-5pm to view this exhibit and to learn more on the history of our local servicewomen.

If you or anyone you know is a veteran who is in need please take a look at our website Real Estate Brokers for Veterans.

    Tom - That is really cool. I had no idea that they had something just for women veterans.
