The “Art of the American Soldier” exhibit gives the public a chance to see for the first time more than 250 paintings and sketches of the American Soldier.

The exhibit opened at the National Constitution Center in Philadelphia on Sept. 24, 2010, and will remain on display through Jan. 10, 2011.

The showing is representative of a 15,000-piece collection created by more than 1,300 soldier-artists that has been in cultural storage in Washington since the start of the Army’s art program in World War I. The exhibit explores how soldier-artists saw Army life.
