artifact description
Curated by Mellon Summer Scholar Laura Bergin '17, this interdisciplinary exhibition examines how the human figure is represented in prints, photographs and paintings of modern war and political conflict from Gettysburg College’s Special Collections and Fine Arts Collection. Bergin will examine how the artist’s interest in journalistic photographs compares to other visual documentation of the aftermath of other wars, from the Civil War, through World War I and II, as well as the Korean and Vietnam wars, and the more recent conflicts in the Middle East.
