The National WWII Museum’s newest special exhibit, SOLDIER | ARTIST: Trench Art in World War II, takes an in-depth look at the military pastime of creating art, souvenirs, and tools out of discarded materials and the waste of war, a practice that yielded pieces known as "trench art." Featuring more than 150 artifacts representing the various forms of WWII trench art, as well as background on their origins and creators, SOLDIER | ARTIST offers a unique opportunity to see physical products of servicemembers' resourcefulness and ingenuity in the field. Curated by the Museum’s Tom Czekanski, SOLDIER | ARTIST will be on view in the Hall of Democracy’s Senator John Alario, Jr. Special Exhibition Hall from March 4 to January 2, 2022.



In commemoration of the 80th anniversary of the attack on Pearl Harbor, Infamy: Pearl Harbor Remembered reflects on the devastating events of December 7, 1941. By spurring the US Congress to declare war on Japan and serving as a rallying cry for the US war effort, the attack on Pearl Harbor has become known as a catalyst for America’s entry into World War II—and focal point when considering their actions during the war. Curated by the Museum’s Tom Czekanski, Infamy: Pearl Harbor Remembered will be on view in the Louisiana Memorial Pavilion’s The Joe W. and Dorothy D. Brown Foundation Special Exhibit Gallery from November 17, 2021 to June 26, 2022.
