The Embedded Artist

Uncle Sam wants you as soldier and artist! With pictures ranging from World War I to the present, the United States Army Art Collection covers all major field operations that have been undertaken by the US Army. With graphic works, paintings and photographies taken by soldiers the aim is to document field operations and to make them accessible via exhibitions and an online archive. As of now new media works have not found their way into the collection but we are curious to see when the first performance or video installation is going to be acquired.

Until then you may browse the following links to view the not so great works of great soldier artists.
