Honor, Courage, Commitment: Marine Corps Art, 1975-2015

National Museum of the Marine Corps

The first exhibition in the National Museum of the Marine Corps' Combat Art Gallery honors Marines who have served in the Corps during the last 40 years and echoes the core values of the Marine Corps:  honor, courage, and commitment.  One hundred works of art by 22 artists are divided among three themes.

   Every Clime and Place illustrates Marines as they conduct training and engage the enemy in a variety of settings and situations around the globe.
 
   No Better Friend, No Worse Enemy captures Marines meeting the enemy with unmatched ferocity and then rendering aid to civilians under the most dire of circumstances.
 
   The Price reminds us that war is all-consuming.  Marines willingly accept the risks associated with their missions, and families shoulder the burdens of uncertainty, loss, and grief.
 
The works in this show have been drawn, painted, or sculpted by individuals who are Marines first and artists second.
