USCG Art now on Permanent Display in the Pentagon


A young Coast Guard lieutenant stops to look at the “Heritage of Service” display now on view at Coast Guard Headquarters. The display uses many works by Official Athorized Coast Guard artists to depict modern day missions.

COAST GUARD ART USED FOR MAJOR DISPLAYS IN WASHINGTON

Artworks by Annie Strack and 14 other Coast Guard artists are a significant component of a major new display on the service, now on permanent view at both Coast Guard Headquarters in Washington and at the Pentagon, near the Office of the Secretary of the Navy. The exhibit, entitled “U.S. Coast Guard: Heritage of Service,” recounts the Coast Guard’s history through art, photos and text. The many missions of the modern day service are depicted in paintings by the official authorized Coast Guard artists. The display at Headquarters is affectionately referred to as “Heritage Hall.” Installed on the ground floor, it is seen daily by Headquarters staff and visitors. The display at the Pentagon is in a corridor that is on the public tour route and will be seen annually by over 100,000 visitors. The exhibit marks several years’ effort to get a major installation on the Coast Guard at the Pentagon. The commandant is expected to inaugurate it in special ceremony.
