The National Museum of the Marine Corps' traveling exhibitions expand our sphere of influence and relevance beyond our walls, making the exploration of Marine Corps history accessible to a wider audience.
Honor, Courage, Commitment: Marine Corps Art, 1975-2018
The National Museum of the Marine Corps and the Marine Corps Heritage Foundation are pleased to announce the new traveling combat art exhibition titled Honor, Courage, Commitment: Marine Corps Art, 1975-2018.
The exhibition features 36 works of art by 15 combat artists, focusing on Marine Corps service immediately following the Vietnam War through recent years. The exhibit will travel across the country from early 2021 until mid-2023.
About the Exhibition
The majority of the artwork in this exhibition is from our inaugural Combat Art Gallery exhibit at the Museum. The selected pieces include 34 works on canvas and two sculptures. The art speaks to the experiences of the artists, most of whom were deployed in combat. The Marine Corps' direction to these artists was simply, "Go to war, do art." The result is a rich commentary on the men and women of the Marine Corps who are "no better friend, no worse enemy" in their engagements around the world.
The works are divided into three themes:
