Learning Forum: The Art of War
November 10, 2019 2:00 pm - 3:00 pmLearning Forums are thought-provoking presentations on a wide variety of topics. Each program features a 45-minute presentation, followed by an open forum with questions and discussion about the topic.
This week, James Pollock and Steve Randall present, "The Art of War."
Both former military artists, their “Plein Air” art is featured in our exhibit, “From Field to Field.”
From 1966-1970, the U.S. Army Vietnam Combat Artist Program sent teams of soldier artists with sketchbooks and paint brushes into war torn fields of Vietnam.
Pollock and Randall were two of the 46 soldier artists that participated in the U.S. Army Vietnam Combat Artist Program. Using a visual presentation, they will relate their personal experiences and give a historical overview of the army’s soldier art program.
After the presentation, Pollock and Randall will entertain questions about their war art and/or the plein air art they do today.
Admission is $12 for adults, $10 for seniors, half-off for members. Call 605-394-6923 to reserve tickets.
