Opening Reception, Friday, August 10, 4-6 pm for the exhibit “Doughboys and Flyboys: WWI Stories by Vermonters from the Home and Battlefront” at Sheldon Museum in Middlebury. WWI photographs, letters, posters, and memorabilia, most of which relate to Vermont’s Addison County residents who were in the service during WWI are on view. The exhibit culminates with “In Flanders Field,” an eloquent, provocative art installation by internationally-recognized artist Fran Bull of Brandon, Vermont. Based on the WWI poem by Colonel John McCrae, the installation is a moving and powerful meditation on war. The reception is free and open to the public. Exhibit runs through November 11, 2018.
