Sunday, September 22, 2013 in the East Building of the National Gallery of Art, Washington, DC, collaborators Binh Danh and Robert Schultz spoke about their exhibition, “War Memoranda: Photography, Walt Whitman, and Renewal.”

The slide talk treated their project in relation to the NGA’s exhibition, “Tell It with Pride,” centered on the 54th Massachusetts Regiment—the African-American regiment treated in the film Glory—and the Augustus Saint-Gaudens’ Shaw Memorial. Memorials, memory, and the attempt to recover and honor the common individual soldier are themes shared by the two projects. For more information, visit “Tell It with Pride” on the NGA website.
