Community Gallery Series
Marking Time: Voyage to Vietnam presents the stories of young American soldiers going to war in Vietnam through graffiti left on troopship’s bunks. Every bunk has at least one story to tell, and the artwork and slogans capture the era’s politics, military pride, humor and anti-war sentiments. The exhibit was developed by Art and Lee Beltrone, founders of the Vietnam Graffiti Project. VGP was created to preserve the canvasses that were discovered aboard former troopships and displaying them in museums across the country. This exhibit, which features canvasses created by troops hailing from the PA/NJ/DE area, is part of the Community Gallery series and is included with regular Museum admission.
