From Swords to Plowshares: Metal Trench Art from World War 1

June 1 through Aug. 12

Admission is free

This exhibit features more than 160 pieces of metal trench art, educational panels, and period photographs. Trench art is a form of brass art that finds its origins in the trenches of World War I. During the war, some soldiers used periods of inactivity to create art from artillery shells, bullets, aircraft parts, coin currency and more. The art ranges from primitive artillery shells to elaborately made lamps. This art form spread to the civilian sector in wartime, and eventually into World War II. Trench art from the following countries will be exhibited: United States, Great Britain, Hungary, Italy, Germany, France, Canada, Australia, Belgium and Czechoslovakia.

Bell County Museum, 201 N. Main St., Belton, open 12 to 5 p.m. Tuesday through Friday, 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday, closed Sunday and Monday.
