The exhibition 'War Memoranda: Photography, Walt Whitman, and Memorials' by Binh Danh and Robert Schultz examines the question "How do Americans remember war?" Artist Binh Danh and poet Robert Schultz have used soldiers' photographic portraits developed onto the flesh of leaves, historic battlefield landscapes photographed using 19th-century technologies and poems about war to provide intimate reflections on the aftereffects of war. A product of an eight year collaboration, this exhibition features over fifty original photographs, poetry broadsides, chlorophyll prints and artist books, drawn from the war poems and prose of Walt Whitman, our nation's first war correspondent, and upon the Liljienquist Collection of Civil War portraits held in the Library of Congress.
