PHOTOGRAPHIC EXHIBITION ABOUT THE AMERICAN SOLDIER COMING TO K-STATE'S BEACH MUSEUM OF ART

MANHATTAN -- An exhibition of more than 100 photographs depicting the life of members of the American military will be on display March 6 to May 31 at Kansas State University's Marianna Kistler Beach Museum of Art.

"The American Soldier: A Photographic Tribute" is an exhibition of 116 photographs depicting military life in nine wars, from the Civil War to the war in Iraq. The exhibition, suitable for all age groups, also celebrates the contributions made by photojournalists who risked danger at the front lines.

Cyma Rubin, the exhibition's curator, reviewed more than 4,000 photos for the exhibition, selecting those that that would tell stories of camaraderie, courage, humor and sacrifice. Rubin also was curator of the "Capture the Moment: The Pulitzer Prize Photographs" exhibition, which was at the Beach Museum of Art in 2003.

"The American Soldier" is sponsored by EADS North America, Business of Entertainment Inc. and the John B. Stetson Company.

More information on the exhibition is available by contacting the Beach Museum at 785-532-7718 or dropping by the museum on the southeast corner of the K-State campus at 14th Street and Anderson Avenue. Free visitor parking is available next to the building. Normal museum hours are 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Tuesdays, Wednesdays, Fridays and Saturdays; 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. Thursdays; and noon to 5 p.m. Sundays. The museum is closed Mondays.
