The Pensacola Museum of Art presents “Telling: Pensacola” as a part of our upcoming exhibition, “100 Faces of War” on loan from the Smithsonian. This special performance will be held within the exhibition space among 100 portraits of veterans. Admission is free to the public and seating is first-come, first-serve. “Telling: Pensacola” is part of the national Telling Project, founded in 2008 to help bridge the communication gap with an American society in which less than 1 percent of the population has served in the military over the past dozen years of war. To help deepen community understanding of their experiences, veterans and family members talk about how and why they served, the injuries and challenges they’ve had to overcome, and how they are transitioning back into civilian life. The Telling Project has been staged in fifteen states.
Telling Project programming in Florida and the “100 Faces of War” exhibition is sponsored by Florida Humanities. Established in 1973, Florida Humanities is an independent, nonprofit affiliate of the National Endowment for the Humanities. Florida Humanities develops and funds public programs and resources around the state that explore the stories of Florida, its history and cultural heritage, literary and artistic life, environment and development, issues and ideas, communities and traditions.
