On Exhibit: Coast Guard Art
Beginning January 4, 2022, the Channel Islands Maritime Museum will be presenting its latest temporary exhibition “Coast Guard Art” in its Brenda and Gary Farr Gallery.
The Coast Guard Art Program, tasked with revealing the truth and educating the public through diverse mediums, goes beyond the simple recording of events. Coast Guard Art, made by those who protect our shores, commemorates, instructs, documents, and raises morale at home and at the front.
Showcasing the very best of this collection, this new exhibit includes moving portraits, gripping search and rescue scenes, and depictions of everyday life during the maritime conflict. All of these masterful artworks reflect our complex relationship with the wild ocean and its abundant ecosystems and illustrate that indeed, the Coast Guard is always ready.
“Coast Guard Art” runs from January 4, 2022, through March 25, 2022. Entrance to the exhibition is included in the price of admission to CIMM.
