The exhibit features black and white photographs, some of which were taken at the Liberal Army Air Base. Come take a journey back in time, see some of Liberal’s military and aviation history, and enjoy Glasco’s impressive work.

The MAAM Foundation will host a public reception for “From the Ground Up” in the newly renovated art gallery at the Mid-America Air Museum. The reception, held January 5th from 6pm-8pm, will offer free admission to the museum, hors d’oeuvres, and refreshments.

He later served at the White Sands Test Facility (Apollo Site) in New Mexico, as the lead photographer, and as a laboratory chief at NASA White Sands Test Facility.

In addition to his military career, Glasco also owned and operated Jack’s Camera Shop in Alamogordo, NM. His photography has had world-wide exposure, including Life Magazine, Yank Magazine, Armed Forces Newspapers, the Avalanche-Journal newspaper, New Mexico Magazine, the Alamogordo Daily News, the El Paso Times, and the Denver Post.
