Walk through works of art inspired by the turmoil of the Vietnam War. Painting, sculpture, photography and other works in the collection were produced mostly by veterans and their experiences give their art an unmistakable emotional edge. While some of the works are abstract, others are realistic and many incorporate poetry, letters, diaries and other direct representations of the experience of war. The power of most of the work has only increased with the passage of time.
