The Pensacola Museum of Art has reached deep into their in-house collection for an exhibit that symbolizes the mood of the coronavirus pandemic.

“All of the works are from our permanent collection,” said Anna Wall, the chief curator at the Pensacola Museum of Art. “In addition to all of the traveling exhibitions that we bring to Pensacola, we actually have a collection of 700 art works on site that are for exhibition, research, they are really a resource for the community.”

A new exhibit at the Pensacola Museum of Art is bringing people face to face with the realities of war. “We’re surrounded by the faces of 100 Americans who participated in the Iraq and Afghanistan wars” said Anna Wall, the Chief Curator of the Pensacola Museum of Art, as she walks through "100 Faces of War", a new exhibit that takes up three galleries on the second floor of the museum. 

For the project, 100 people sat for portraits after their experiences with war.
