Witness to Wartime: Takuichi Fujii introduces an artist whose work opens a window to historical events, issues, and ideas far greater than the individual. Takuichi Fujii (1891-1964) bore witness to his life in America and, most especially, to his experience during World War II.
This exhibition highlights works from the past 50 years of the Tom Peyton Memorial Arts Festival Exhibit. All works in this exhibition are on loan from the First United Methodist Church in Alexandria, where the Tom Peyton Memorial Arts Festival has been held throughout its history. Many of the artists in this exhibition have been exhibited at AMoA in previous years, with a number of the artists in our permanent collection as well.
In its forty year history, the Alexandria Museum of Art has been associated with multiple talented artists in a variety of ways. Faculty & Friends: Reminiscing features thirteen artists who have had a strong connection with the museum at various times in its history. These artists served the museum as employees, board members, LSUA professors, and volunteers and have played a key role in the success of the museum, no matter their position.
