100 years ago, in Flanders fields, soldiers who were poets, novelists and artists crawled through mud in the trenches and breathed poison gas on the battlefields. After the war, they transformed their experiences of human suffering into literature and art. The Nelson-Atkins has organized an exhibit that explores the impact of WWI on art and artists. $50 for tour, lunch and transportation, $35 for tour and lunch.
