National Museum of the Pacific War Features New Marine Heritage Exhibit
The National Museum of the Pacific War (NMPW) and the Marine Corps Heritage Foundation present the traveling art exhibition, “Honor, Courage, Commitment: Marine Corps Art, 1975-2018”. It will be featured October 1, 2021 through January 2, 2022. The show includes 36 works by 15 combat artists, portraying Marine Corps service from the mid-1970s through the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan. The exhibit will travel to approximately eight American cities west of the Mississippi River from early 2021 until mid-2023.
The 34 works on canvas and 2 sculptures speak to the experiences of the artists, most of whom were deployed around the globe. The show is divided among three themes such as the readiness of the nation’s global force, delivering aid to those in need, and the sacrifices our men and women in uniform, along with their families, make.
