WWII Veterans: Portrait Photographs by Jason Grow

Oct. 27, 2017 — Nov. 26, 2017

First shown at Gloucester City Hall in 2015, Jason Grow’s portrait photographs of Cape Ann’s World War II veterans were enthusiastically received by audiences of all ages and walks of life. The exhibit makes an encore appearance at the Cape Ann Museum this autumn, offering visitors another opportunity to view these remarkable images as a group. Admission is free for veterans and all active-duty military personnel and their families, including National Guard and Reserve.

On Veterans Day (Saturday, November 11), the Museum will be free and open to the public and Jason Grow will give a talk about the exhibit.

The Cape Ann Museum is proud to participate in the national Blue Star Museum program. Blue Star Museums is a collaboration among the National Endowment for the Arts, Blue Star Families, the Department of Defense, and museums across America. Each summer since 2010, Blue Star Museums have offered free admission to the nation’s active-duty military personnel and their families, including National Guard and Reserve, from Memorial Day through Labor Day.
