Honoring his legacy as a veteran, it also exhibits works by local veteran artists William Gura, Jim Hosner, and Michael Moffett. The exhibition provides an opportunity to take a look at the impact of war on individuals as well as the various meanings of artmaking for these artists working in diverse media.
J. André Smith and the Art of Camouflage – This exhibition provides an overview of André Smith’s experimentation with camouflage methods during World War I, with objects recreated to bring several of his ideas to life and to explore the intersection of art and the mechanics of war.
