World War I and American Art

November 4, 2016—April 9, 2017

Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts
128 N. Broad St., Philadelphia

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 responded to the First World War.

The first major museum exhibition to revisit this unprecedented global event through the eyes of American artists, World War I and American Art will transform the current understanding of art made during the war and in its wake. 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.

Note: PAFA is a Blue Star Museum and offers free admission to military families!
