From Alabama to the Skies of France, 1917-1918: Penrose Vass Stout’s Improbable Journey
10:30 am - 11:30 am

In conjunction with the exhibition Sketching the Skies: Penrose Vass Stout, Alabama’s WWI Artist-Aviator Jeff Jakeman, Professor Emeritus, Auburn University, will share insights into the life and art of Montgomery native Penrose Stout (1887–1934).  A World War I aviator, architect, and artist, Stout sent home rich letters documenting his experiences while abroad and created detailed sketches that document military life, the French countryside, and views from the cockpit. Jakeman will discuss Stout’s involvement in the war effort along with how the works in the exhibition fit within the larger Penrose Stout collection held at the Alabama Department of Archives and History. Read More
