Invited back to Gettysburg National Military Park for the second time, acclaimed civil war bronze sculptor, painter and illustrator Sean McGraw brings his unique perspective back to Gettysburg as the Park’s May/June 2018 Artist-in-Residence. McGraw is a sculptor whose visual accuracy honors the legacy of our country's most tumultuous times.
This Artist-in-Residency program is made possible by a joint effort of the Gettysburg Foundation and non-profit the National Park Arts Foundation, with support from the National Park Service. Through a legacy of artists, the program aims to connect visitors and the Gettysburg community to the park in a novel and compelling way, to inspire the preservation of our shared cultural heritage and the immortalization of this current point in American history.
