Laynor Foundation Museum, a vision of Harold A. Laynor, the
late artist and educator, was established in 1992 as a non
profit organization. The main objective
of The Laynor Foundation Museum is to award scholarships
to deserving students who are pursuing a career in the visual
arts and art education, and are in need of financial assistance.
Foundation Museum also supports community needs by increasing
the awareness of the value of the visual arts. Funds are generated
through the sale of paintings,
special activities, donations
Laynor was so prolific and the size of the Collection is so
daunting, that we could not possibly display all of the oil
paintings, watercolors and mixed media pieces on this site.
All of his works are to be considered for
sale - and the proceeds will help the Foundation to continue
to provide scholarships to art students who have a desire
to teach visual arts.
War II, Harold Laynor was a young soldier in a previously
classified unit known as the Ghost Army.
As he moved across France and Belgium, foxhole to foxhole,
he carried his watercolors and canvasses with him and recorded
history on the spot. It was during his recovery from wounds
received in action in France that Harold Laynor met and studied
under Pablo Picasso.
Foundation Museum is currently seeking a permanent home for
the entire Ghost Army Collection to
preserve this truly important series of emotions and record
of American history.
