Ships of War: Temporary special exhibit at USNA Museum (Through June 15, 2014)

| April 27, 2014, 11:00 AM | 0 Comments

USNASealThe U.S. Naval Academy Museum will host the “U.S. Navy Ships of War” exhibit open now through June 15 featuring paintings from maritime artist Jim Griffiths.

Admission to the museum and exhibit is free and hours are Monday – Saturday from 9 a.m. – 5 p.m. and Sunday 11 a.m. – 5 p.m.

Forty of Griffiths watercolors will be on display, bringing to life the colorful history of America’s steel Navy whose ships have been lost in time. The paintings depict important vessels and naval actions from the Spanish American War in 1898 to the first Iraq Conflict in 1991.

Griffiths was trained at Amherst College and the Los Angeles College of Art, and he is internationally known for his unique ability to portray America’s Navy in action. A member of the American Society of Marine Artists, he was selected in 2000 by the United States Postal Service to paint the original art for the commemorative postage stamps issued to celebrate the 100th Anniversary of the United States Submarine Service; a painting of a Gato-class submarine from this collection will be on display.

Visitors to the U.S. Naval Academy Museum can walk through Gate 3 (Maryland Ave.) or Gate 1 (King George St.). All visitors 18 and older are required to show valid, government-issued picture ID. Drivers without Department of Defense I.D. are not permitted to drive onto the Naval Academy grounds. Handicapped visitors with proper decals are permitted through Gate 1 after a vehicle inspection. All bags are subject to search.
