Ms. House's AP Senior English class recently took a field trip to the Frist Center for the Visual Arts to View the WWI and American Art Exhibit. 

Timed to coincide with the centenary of the United States’ entry into the First World War, this exhibition takes an expansive look at America’s wartime visual culture through the works of more than seventy artists, including George Bellows, Marsden Hartley, Childe Hassam, Jane Peterson, Horace Pippin, John Singer Sargent, and Edward Steichen. Drawings, films, magazine illustrations, newspaper cartoons, notebooks, paintings, photographs, posters, prints, and sculptures gathered together from sixty public and private collections, including the Imperial War Museums in London, tell the multifaceted story of World War I and American art. Contemporary works by Debra Priestly and Mary Reid Kelley attest to the continued relevance of the war today.
