ARTWORK BY USMC COMBAT ARTIST RICHARD JOHNSON
Marine Corps Combat Art Program
Honor, courage, and commitment are the basic principles embraced by all Marines. Along with a dose of gritty realism, those principles are reflected in the combat art collection. Brigadier General Denig’s simple guidance—“Go to war, do art.”—still applies today. Talented active duty Marines, Reservists, and civilian artists document Marine Corps life on the battlefield and while training for battle, during humanitarian missions, and on the home front. The collection’s strength rests on the authentic and unvarnished focus these works reflect of the human condition under the most trying of circumstances.

In addition to the Combat Art Gallery, the Museum opened an art studio in 2017. Located behind the art gallery, the studio provides space for combat artists to practice their skills and to create art.
Visit the Artist's Studio at the Museum and see combat artists in action on the second Saturday of every month!
