CHICAGO (AP) - The National Veterans Art Museum will feature an exhibition of work by Chicago veteran artist George Klauba.

The museum announced Wednesday that two series of Klauba paintings will be on display. One is called “Nerves on Fire: Reflections on WWII,” and the other, “Cuba: Rebels, Orishas & 26 Julio.”

Klauba’s first exhibition will open Aug. 26 with a reception from 6 to 9 p.m.

Klauba’s work focuses on the impact of watching World War II veterans return home and the daily sacrifices made on the home front. He recalls the objects brought back from war zones and his curiosity over the exotic names of Pacific locales.

The “Cuba” series is inspired by Klauba’s time as a sailor in the U.S. Navy stationed in Cuba during the revolution.
