Legacies of World War II
April 27 – July 6
Presented in partnership with EVANSVILLE COURIER & PRESS, GEORGE & BONNIE REHNQUIST, RICK & JANET ZEIHER, and BAMBERGER, FOREMAN, OSWALD & HAHN, LLP
From April 27 – July 6, the Old Gallery is host to the exhibition Legacies of World War II. As the world commemorates the 70th anniversary of the heroic landings on the Normandy beaches on June 6, 1944, this exhibition highlights local collections documenting the history of the war. The exhibition will encompass a cross section of material from the collection of the Evansville Museum and from private collections, including uniforms, weapons, photographs, and documents. These objects will explore a variety of aspects of humankind’s largest and deadliest conflict and will illustrate the enduring interest in the most monumental war in world history.
A special section of the exhibition will recall the history of LST 325 during World War II, including its participation in the Normandy Campaign.
