Based on the number of entries, about 200, from across the country, this is one of The Art Guild’s most popular exhibits.

I captured the portrait of ‘The Real Buzz’ – the second person to walk on the Moon – during his talk at the jetBlue Sky Theater Planetarium in the Cradle of Aviation Museum in Garden City, on October 23, 2015.
