'U.S. Military combat veteran and acclaimed painter Joshua Osburg is the new Artist-in-Residence at Gettysburg National Military Park beginning in mid-January. Gettysburg National Military Park, in partnership with the National Parks Arts Foundation and the Gettysburg Foundation, is welcoming Osburg for a month-long residency on the Gettysburg battlefield. He will talk about his work at an artist engagement event at the Gettysburg National Military Park Museum and Visitor Center on February 3 from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m.

Osburg is known for expressing the pain of war and transformation throughout his visual themes. He plans to create three to five oil paintings in a series entitled “The Last Measure of Devotion” to incorporate the landscape of Gettysburg National Military Park. The effort will be an exploration of Osburg’s relationship with war from the perspective of an artist, educating the public about the impact of war on the artist and visual art...'

Cheers,
