KANSAS CITY, Mo. – The confluence of art and war may not be a normal subject for artists, but a new exhibit at the World War I Museum seeks to use the combination to convey how the war looked and felt to those who witnessed it first-hand.

The exhibit features 34 paintings and letters, most from soldiers fighting the war.

41 Action News recently spoke with Jonathan Casey, director of the archives at the Edward Jones Research Center, who spoke about the importance of the art.



The exhibit runs through January 13, 2019.
