Red, White & Blue Sculpture in the Brookgreen Garden Collection: Robin Salmon

The Horry County Museum and The AVX Foundation present a lecture by Robin Salmon November 4 about American veteran sculptors in the Brookgreen Gardens collection. Many of the sculptors in the collection served in the military or in military support jobs during wartime and its aftermath. In observance of Veterans Day, this talk will detail those who served and what they did (including some decorated heroes), those who created our country’s important patriotic monuments, and some of the real “Monuments Men” who saved international art treasures during and after World War II. A native South Carolinian, Salmon has been on the staff of Brookgreen Gardens since 1975. She oversees acquisition, exhibition, and conservation. The lecture is free and takes place at the Horry County Museum in Conway.
