Art opening: "Neil Armstrong Autographs From the Anthony Pizzitola Collection"


In life and even after death, Neil Armstrong continues to be an international iconic figure as the first human to step onto another planetary surface. Equally, in life and even after death, Neil Armstrong's autograph is the most valuable on this planet. This is partly due to his abrupt no-autograph policy launched in 1994 due to his disdain for his signature being used as a commercial instrument and other factors impacting this very private person.

He also exclaimed that in 1969 legendary aviator Charles Lindbergh advised him to never sign autographs.

The Heritage Society hosts an extensive display of Neil Armstrong autographs from the collection of Anthony Pizzitola, who began pursuing the modern day Christopher Columbus in 1979. The exhibition will include both famous and rare signed photographs. Pizzitola is a member of the Universal Autograph Collectors Club and is the author of Neil Amstrong: The Quest for His Autograph. Pizzitola also contributed to First Man, Armstrong's authorized biography by James Hansen.

This exhibit of Neil Armstrong memorabilia will be on display through June 28.
