In June B&J Gallery and Buy Local Bowling Green gave away a piece of art and American history with the Fort Knox Floor American Flag. Some are still available at B&J Gallery but the majority of flags are about to become harder to come by as Mr. Walkup will have his final Bowling Green Public show. It’s a piece of art that has a historical significance to Kentucky and our fighting in World War II. The flag is made of the Barrack floors of Ft. Knox. Here is a photo of one of those soldiers who trained at Ft. Knox during the era this floor was used:
The exhibit will be at the Farmers market in front of Hobby Lobby. The wood is all but gone. Look for Reids Livery and Winery, and he will be with them. “Thanks Bowling Green for 3+ years of fun and support. If more wood comes available I might be back in business but for now lets clean out the garage and get some flags to good homes,” said Russ Walkup.
