Army Art Collection

This painting by Mead Schaeffer is part of the Army Art collection, which is stored in a large warehouse 30 minutes outside of Washington, and is rarely seen by the public.

Many of the paintings were made by servicemen on duty who were an eyewitness to dramatic world events. Others were commissioned pieces for posters and other publications.

The collection also includes a few Norman Rockwell originals.

Thanks, Tex/Ed

James, are these periodically pulled out for show?

I saw a news clip on this collection last night on the TV as well. Thank you for pointing this out. I can't wait for the museum to become a reality!
