The Hearst Art Gallery's current exhibition "Lee and Grant" on the lives, careers, and historical impact of Civil War generals Robert E. Lee and Ulysses S. Grant has garnered coverage by several news outlets, including the Catholic Voice, Lamorinda Weekly and Lamorinda Patch.
The exhibit presents photographs, paintings, prints, coins, reproduction clothing, accoutrements owned and carried by the two men, documents written in their own hands, and biographical and historical records to reveal each man in his historical and cultural context, allowing audiences to compare the ways each has been remembered for almost 150 years. The exhibition is on view through Sunday, Mar. 20, 2011. For more information and schedule details click here.
