PHILADELPHIA (AP) - For as long as the United States has gone to war, it has sent soldiers marching off to battle armed with paintbrushes, canvas, ink and sketchbooks.

More than 250 examples of their efforts over the past century will be on display, most for the first time, in a new exhibition in Philadelphia.

“Art of the American Soldier” opens Sept. 24 at the National Constitution Center and runs through Jan. 10.

The Constitution Center has planned gallery talks, an audio tour that includes soldiers telling their own war stories, workshops and lesson plans to complement the exhibition.

An online art gallery also encourages veterans from all branches of the military to submit their own art expressing their personal war experiences.
