John Singer Sargent’s incredible masterpiece Gassed is truly one of the giants of the art world at more than nine feet tall by 21 feet long. The landmark painting is the focal point in this special centennial exhibition that also includes reproductions of many of his study drawings and historical and contemporary objects on detection and protection from chemical warfare.
Warfare and chemical weapons continue to have the same horrific impact today as they did when John Singer Sargent painted Gassed. Join us for three rapid-fire talks looking at the different aspects of the legacy of this violence, and what has—and has not—changed in the last century. Speakers include Pulitzer-winning Photojournalist David Carson, Dr. Dean Gray, Director of Intelligence, Surveillance and Reconnaissance at MRIGlobal, and Capt. Tim Hornik, Vice President of the Heartland Regional Blinded Veterans Association.
