Opens Monday, Dec. 22

War and conflict as seen through the eyes of artists is the subject of a new art exhibition opening Monday, Dec. 22, at the Fred Jones Jr. Museum or Art. Beyond the Battlefield: Depictions of War reveals visions of war as heroic and valorous as well as tragic and absurd in a show presented in conjunction with the University of Oklahoma School of Drama. In April, three performances have been scheduled of the one-act play Eliot, a Soldier’s Fugue, but until then, guests will be able to view paintings, prints and photos delivering a variety of perspectives on the subject. The museum is located at 555 Elm Ave., Norman, on the OU campus. Beyond the Battlefield continues through May 10. For more information, visit www.ou.edu/fjjma.
