The University of West Florida Pensacola Museum of Art welcomes you to join in the opening of our newest exhibitions – “100 Faces of War” and “John Markowitz: Recent Work.” “100 Faces of War,” a traveling exhibition from the Smithsonian, presents the stories of those who served the U.S. in the Iran and Afghanistan wars. Organized in collaboration with artist Matt Mitchell, the exhibition features 100 oil portraits of Americans representing a cross-section of home states, military branches, jobs and backgrounds. Each painting includes a candid, unedited, firsthand account of war. The statements take many different forms, including emails and letters to loved ones and poems and words written specifically for this exhibition. “100 Faces of War” is an exhibition organized for travel by the Smithsonian Institution Traveling Exhibition Service (SITES). The exhibition is a partnership with the Florida Humanities Council with support from the National Endowment for the Humanities. Also on view: “John Markowitz: Recent Work.” This event is free and open to the public. Light refreshments provided.
