National Churchill Museum announces WORLD WAR 11 NAVY ART: A VISION OF HISTORY

National Churchill Museum presents WORLD WAR 11 NAVY ART: A VISION OF HISTORY, an exhibition on view June 10, 2013- August 11, 2013.

This exhibition will commemorate all who served and the 70th anniversary of the year of the turn of the tide of WWII; 1943. The Navy Combat Artist Program was approved after New York muralist Griffith Baily Coale convinced Admiral C.W. Nimitz to send Navy artists into action to record military activities. In August 1941 Coale became the Navy’s first combat artist on active duty.
