The exhibition “Vietnam: The Real War, Photographs from the Associated Press” is on view at the Grisham Gallery at Huntsville Museum of Art from June 9 through October 6, 2019. There is a ticketed presentation and preview reception on Thursday, June 6, 2019.

Still River Editions’ Master Printmaker Mark Savoia printed the exhibition.

From the museum’s website: “To cover the Vietnam War, The Associated Press gathered an extraordinary group of superb photojournalists in its Saigon bureau, creating one of the greatest photographic legacies of the 20th century. This collection tells the story of a divisive war that left a deep and lasting impression on American life.

From Malcolm Browne’s photograph of the burning monk and Nick Ut’s picture of a 9-year-old running from a napalm attack to Eddie Adams’ photograph of the execution of a Viet Cong prisoner, Vietnam: The Real War contains images that both recorded and changed history.

This exhibition was organized by the Huntsville Museum of Art and The Associated Press.”

The museum is located at 300 Church St. South, Huntsville, AL.
