Temp Exhibit – The Last Good War: Facts & Voices of WWII – Photography by Thomas Sanders

December 1, 2019 @ 10:00 am - March 30, 2020 @ 5:00 pm

World War II remains one of the most galvanizing and defining events in the history of America. Seemingly overnight, the entire nation unified behind a singular cause. An entire generation’s identity was forged, in part, by what many still refer to as the “last good war.” Sixty years later, a young photographer named Thomas Sanders began traveling the country photographing and interviewing hundreds of World War II veterans. The more he shot, the more he listened, and the more captivated he became by their memories of the war. Veronica Kavass, a writer and interviewer with StoryCorps, joined the project and spent countless hours with these men and women, recording their vivid accounts as Tom recorded their storied faces. The images and memories of these men and woman preserve a profound piece of America’s history. A traveling exhibition of Sanders extraordinary photographs has been organized by Photographic Traveling Exhibitions. Featured are 40 photographs along with the texts of the veterans’ accounts. The book, THE LAST GOOD WAR, published by Welcome Books, and a gallery guide accompany the exhibition. www.p-t-e.org/sanders        Sponsored by Wells Fargo
