Info: 100 Faces of War The American military in the 21st century is diverse and reflects the complexities of the country and the current times and this exhibit presents 100 stories of those who served the U.S. in the Iraq and Afghanistan wars. “100 Faces of War,” organized in collaboration with artist Matt Mitchell, features 100 oil portraits of Americans representing a cross-section of home states, military branches, jobs and backgrounds. Each of the paintings includes a candid, unedited, firsthand account of war with each statement written specifically for this exhibition. The portraits symbolize 100 different and highly personal ways of looking at valor, sacrifice and the human experience of war. Through this exhibition, visitors will come to know the veterans’ courage, fears, warmth and humanity. More than 2 million Americans have served in the theaters of war in Iraq and Afghanistan from 2001 through 2014. 100 Faces of War is an exhibition organized for travel by the Smithsonian Institution Traveling Exhibition Service (SITES). We are expecting many tours for this exhibit so please call in advance for groups of 5 or more! Tours/groups welcome by appointment, contact 620-846-2527 for information or to set up a tour. Business hours for the Stauth Museum, 111 N Aztec Street, Montezuma KS are Tue -Sat 9-12 1-4:30. Admission is free, but donations are gratefully accepted to help pay for this incredible exhibit!
