The library will host a presentation by Ron Michael, curator of Birger Sandzen Memorial Art Gallery, on the work of Chapman, Kansas native, Henry Varnum Poor on Thursday, June 26th at 7 pm. Poor was already an accomplished artist when he was drafted to serve in World War I. His duties along the front lines were dangerous, but he was able to document his surroundings and fellow soldiers in paintings, drawings, and prints. Years later, Poor volunteered his services to again paint and sketch military activities during World War II. This presentation will compare Poor’s work and writings during the World Wars.
