The Second Battlefield: Nurses in the First World War, Spencer Museum of Art
Extended through April 5
Nursing played a crucial role during the First World War. Emergency medical practices evolved enormously during the war years (1914-1918) and thousands more medical workers were involved than in previous wars. This exhibition, like “World War I & The End of Empires,” is drawn primarily from a highly significant gift of over 3,000 WWI works donated to the Spencer Museum of Art earlier this year by Professor Eric Gustav Carlson. It is the first of a number of anticipated thematic selections from the Carlson gift.
