Charles Vollan Ph.D., Associate Professor of American History, South Dakota State University, will speak about World War 1: its origins, progression and the role played by the United States. Dr. Vollan will share photographs and maps to provide a clearer sense of the war and the nature of the fighting.
You are also encouraged to explore the war through the paintings of Harvey Dunn in his official capacity as a US war artist. Harvey Dunn: War Works is on display at South Dakota Art Museum through February 9, 2019. The gallery will be open for viewing at 6:30 prior to Dr. Vollan's talk.
