Art Collections

Since the early 1990's the Bomber Command Museum (formerly the Nanton Lancaster Air Museum) has enjoyed a special relationship with prominent aviation artist John Rutherford of Kamloops, British Columbia. During this period John has been commissioned to complete a number of paintings, each depicting a special moment in history that related to many of the special events that the museum hosts each summer. As well as providing us with a wonderful collection of artwork for display, John and his wife Mabel have generously provided a number of donated paintings and prints to assist with fund raising for the museum.
