A historian is noted as saying that “art and war are old companions,” and many military leaders felt that art could capture the true essence of war. Although artists have been capturing the images of war for years, World War I marked the first time that the U.S. government commissioned artists to capture a war effort in the hopes that the artists could provide a historical record and stir up support for the war. Join Dr. Festa as she shows and discusses pieces of art from antiquity to World War II. Price includes a multicourse continental dinner and a multimedia lecture; tickets required.
