Tanya Ortega – Founder of the National Parks Arts Foundation (NPAF), acclaimed painter and US Military combat veteran Joshua Osburg discusses his month-long NPAF artist residency at Gettysburg National Military Park.
Osburg is known for expressing the pain of war and transformation throughout his visual themes. He plans to create three to five oil paintings in a series entitled “The Last Measure of Devotion” to incorporate the landscape of Gettysburg National Military Park. The effort will be an exploration of Osburg’s relationship with war from the perspective of an artist, educating the public about the impact of war on the artist and visual art.
The National Parks Arts Foundation is a 501(c)3 non-profit dedicated to the promotion of the National Parks through creating dynamic opportunities for artworks that are based in our natural and historic heritage.
