“The Face of Battle: Americans at War, 9/11 to Now”

“The Face of Battle: Americans at War, 9/11 to Now”

April 7, 2017 at 11:30 am - April 30, 2017 at 7:00 pm

Free

In the 16 years since September 11, the wars America is still fighting have become almost routine, faded into the background of daily life. This exhibit seeks to remind us of the human costs of this continual combat by focusing on the individual men and women who fight and die overseas to this day. Using photographs, paintings, sculptures, and more, it provides glimpses—from casual to haunting—into the lives of soldiers, before the battlefield and after. Above, images from Louie Palu’s series “The Fighting Season.”
