    the form of images they can use that would be appropriate for VA hospitals If you re interested or would like more info email Mark Padilla Viau at mark imagineitskins com If you do tell him you read about on Vietnam Veterans of America s Arts of War on the web page Posted on December 1st 2010 in Art Artistic Queries Photography Monumental Bronze VN Map at USAFA James Nance above a former USAF pilot and Vietnam veteran today is a retired airline pilot and an accomplished sculptor Nance who lives in Loveland Colorado specializes in Abraham Lincoln portraits and monumental figure sculpture His latest work certainly fits the monumental category a huge bronze map of Southeast Asia that was dedicated October 1 in the new Southeast Asia Memorial Pavilion at the U S Air Force Academy in Colorado Springs Nance s alma mater Nance s monumental bronze map below a high relief sculpture is eight feet tall and weighs in at about 800 pounds It represents an area of some 900 000 square miles depicting Vietnam Laos Cambodia Thailand and parts of China and Burma That includes the Ho Chi Minh Trail and virtually every U S and enemy base It also represents a labor of love for the sculptor who graduated from the Academy in 1971 He went on to serve as a pilot on a C 141 transport crew that worked primarily on redeploying U S troops from Vietnam including the American POW s released in 1973 He served in the Air Force until 1977 then became a commercial airline pilot until his retirement three years ago Getting the map commission and executing it was just more than I could dream for Nance told Air Force Times As I was working on the map it was almost like a reverent experience It was very inspirational I didn t really think about me that much but the guys who were there In the weeks since its dedication the map has been a big draw on the USAFA campus Since the map has been installed there has been a steady stream of visitors composed of Vietnam veterans and families of those service members killed in action from all services Nance told us The visits are emotional all touch the map at meaningful locations shed tears and remember At times of the day there is a line waiting to enter the building Although I was hoping the map would create a connection to the past this level of emotional response to the monument has been overwhelming For more info about the map and Nance s other work take a look at his website Posted on November 9th 2010 in Art Art of the American Soldier That s the title of an exhibit made up of 250 paintings and sketches done by American soldiers in the line of duty that has been on view at the National Constitution Center on Arch Street in downtown Philadelphia since late September The exhibit which features many works of art from the Army s archives that never had been seen in public before will be on view through January 10 The exhibit was put together with the help of U S Army Center of Military History and the National Museum of the United States Army which is slated to begin construction at Ft Belvoir in Virginia in 2013 After the show ends in Philadelphia it will begin a national tour The works on view are part of a collection that the Army has held in storage for decades of some 15 000 pieces done by more than 1 300 soldier artists dating back to World War I There are etchings as well as paintings and sketches done in pen and ink pencil watercolor charcoal as well as oil and acrylic paints The Army was truly interested in seeing war through the eyes of the soldier artists not for propaganda purposes artist and Vietnam veteran Jim Pollock of Pierre S D who has several pieces in the exhibit told the Associated Press We were encouraged to express our experiences in our own style we could determine our own agenda and our own subject matter Pollock went to Vietnam in August 1967 when he was 22 years old and had just finished art school He did four months in country where he traveled extensively spending time with 52 units and documenting what he saw with India ink on a sketch pad When I got there what I expected to see isn t what I saw he said I didn t see glorious battles or anything like that I saw body bags stuffed in a Huey helicopter I saw death and destruction In the field Pollock said the heat was so oppressive the only breeze would be from the bugs flying around What I tried to do was focus on the individual soldiers to get past what you can see visually and get to the deeper emotional experience of this hostile environment Posted on November 3rd 2010 in Art
