Staff Artists Program

The U.S. Army Center of Military History had two soldier-artists on staff at the time this display was assembled. The work of these featured artists represent events in Rwanda, Somalia, Haiti and Panama, and were created in a studio from sketches and photographs produced while the artists were deployed in the field.

The Artists:

Sergeant Jeffrey Manuszak - U.S. Army, graduate of Ray College of Design, Chicago, Illinois, BFA 1995.

Sergeant Gene Snyder - U.S. Army currently studying for a BFA degree from Norwich University, Northfield, Vermont.
