Gallery Talk: Art in Times of War

August 7, 2018
Meet in Griffin Court
Free with museum admission

What is the role of visual art during times of war? While some artists documented conflict and memorialized military figures, others used their work to express dissent or convey ideologies. Join museum educator Paulina Lopez to explore the ways artists across time have responded to the harsh realities of war.
