Sign up today for: WWI and American Art

                                                 Flower of Death by Claggett Wilson
Coinciding with the centenary of America's involvement with the war, World War I and American Art will be the first major exhibition devoted to exploring the ways in which American artists reacted to the First World War.  The war's impact on art and culture was enormous, as nearly all of the era's major American artists interpreted their experiences, opinions and perceptions of the conflict through their work.  This lecture, presented by Monica Zimmerman, Director of Museum Education at the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts, will explore PAFA's exhibition themes and images as well as discuss the artists who chronicled their experiences of the unfolding war as it crept closer to home and then involved them directly as soldiers, relief workers, political dissenters, and official war artists.

When:  Tuesday, November 22 at 7 p.m.

Where:  Moorestown Library, Meeting Rooms A & B
