Veterans Day Art Memorializes The Daily Experience Of War
Today is Veterans Day. Even as we’re embroiled in two wars in the Middle East, it’s easy to forget. For most of us, our daily experiences are uninterrupted, and today is simply hump day. Today, NYTimes.com is running a beautifully melancholy op-art piece by Andrea Ventura, which illustrates her grandmother’s childhood memories of WWl in the Italian Alps. That was the Great War, the war that was supposed to end all wars, the one that inspired this country to remember its veterans.
