Brown Bag: Why We Fight: Art in Peace and War

September 7, 2023 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm

September 7, 2023 @ 12:00 pm 1:00 pm

In an effort to document his Pawnee warrior’s story, Brummett Echohawk sketched both the brutality of combat and the common humanity of soldiers. Echohawk formed part of a massive Allied force that unleashed devastating destruction on the enemies of freedom, but from Echohawk to Eisenhower, from one soldier’s art to the Monuments Men, they fought equally as hard to preserve the cultural patrimony that embodied these ideals. Presented by David D’Andrea, Ph.D, professor of history at Oklahoma State University and co-curator of Nations at War!
