Korean War Paintings at Air Force Museum

An art exhibit featuring more than 30 paintings depicting the Korean War and the continuing US military presence in South Korea has opened at the National Museum of the US Air Force on the grounds of Wright-Patterson AFB, Ohio. Visitors can view the paintings, which are on loan from the Air Force Art Program, in the museum’s Hall of Honor. “We are pleased to continue our commemoration of the 60th anniversary of the Korean War by honoring our veterans with this art exhibit,” said senior curator Terry Aitken. He added, “These dramatic paintings are a unique way for our visitors to reflect upon the stories of those who served during this ‘Forgotten War.'” The museum began the commemoration last year. Activities have included the opening of a renovated 42,000-square-foot Korean War Gallery. (Dayton report by Sarah Swan) (Museum website)
