Art and Conflict & The Great War: Visions of a World Conflict

Art and Conflict & The Great War: Visions of a World Conflict

Marti Lawrence Wolf

War never seems to go out of business; while we fret over the threat of increased conflicts in North Korea and Afghanistan, images of earlier conflicts stick with us, whether presented in such great paintings as Goya’s “The Third of May” and Picasso’s “Guernica” or in the powerful photography of Robert Capa, Margaret Bourke-White, Sebastião Salgado and countless others. Two timely new exhibits — a large group show, Art and Conflict, with views of war by Colorado artists, and a vintage propaganda/poster show, The Great War: Visions of a World Conflict — both open with a reception from 6 to 9 p.m. on Thursday, September 14, at the Arvada Center, 6901 Wadsworth Boulevard. The exhibits will be there through November 12; the center will host an artist meet-and-greet and lecture on war-inspired art through history on Saturday, October 28. All events are free; learn more at arvadacenter.org.
