On March 2, the CGSC Foundation and the Todd Weiner Gallery hosted an opening reception for an art exhibit entitled “The Art of War” at the City of Lenexa’s art gallery in City Hall (12350 West 87th Street Parkway, Lenexa, Kan. 66215). The exhibit will be on display through April 28.
More than 70 attended the reception and the event was covered by the Kansas City Fox television affiliate (WDAF-TV, Fox 4 KC). See the story
The Art of War exhibit is part of the CGSC Foundation’s “Art of War Initiative” to preserve, promote, and protect the life and longevity of more than 3,800 items in the CGSC art and gift collection. Until the “Art of War Initiative” began in summer 2016 with a partnership between the CGSC Foundation and the Todd Weiner Gallery, the general public has never truly had an opportunity to see this collection. The City of Lenexa exhibit represents only the second time selections from this collection will be on public display outside of Fort Leavenworth.
The Foundation is continuing to work with the CGSC leadership and the Army to explore how the Foundation can bring the initiative to reality and embark on an Army-approved program to preserve and promote the collection. For more information visit the website at www.theartofwarinitiative.org.
