Air Force Artists are not compensated monetarily; they donate their work to the USAF collection. These artists are nationally known for their work in various media, but must be juried into the Air Force Art Program before receiving accreditation as an Air Force Artist. The Air Force Art Collection is on permanent display in Washington, D.C., at the Pentagon, the Smithsonian Air Space Museum, and at Major Command Headquarters.
