Journeys Onward

Due to your requests our amazing Exhibit continues through December 2017

With Films scheduled for Sunday at 1:00 pm.

Sunday December 17 “Art in the Face of War” at 1:00 pm.

Art in the Face of War- Feature Documentary. Eight World War II artists/veterans recount their service experience and their use of art for journalism, as a tactical tool and to preserve their own sanity. Covering all theaters of operation and all branches of the U.S. military, including the once top-secret Army division known as The Deception Corps, their powerful imagery (some done on the spot, some done years later from haunting memories) will enlighten, challenge, even amuse, showing that war is hell but that creativity can exist in the face of destruction.

Directed by David Baugnon. Shot and Edited by Ed Holt. Executive Produced by Cecelia Barnett. Click here for Artist Bios.
