Nomen Global students spent the day learning about the American side of wars throughout history at the Museum of Art on Brigham Young University campus. We split up into two groups and were taken through the museum exhibit by knowledgeable docents.

The MOA's exhibit At War! The Changing Face of American War Illustration was an enlightening experience. Through art, the American opinion of war is made more tangible for students from all different countries:

"American opinion was a key front in the wars of the 20th century, and illustrations were vital weapons in the fight for the hearts and minds of American citizens. Paintings, posters, cartoons and other visual media supporting or criticizing each war have captured the civic imagination and helped define what it is to be an American."

We had the chance to ask museum docents about the history of each piece of work. The entire visit facilitated English listening and speaking skills as well as a more keen knowledge of this aspect of American culture.

Upcoming Activities
Pool Party
We're having a pool party and barbecue! We'll have hot dogs. It will be potluck (bring a dish to share), so bring chips, soda, etc. Bring a swim suit and towel if you want to swim. Even if you don't want to swim, come eat and hang out!

Freedom Days

If you are looking for something to do over the 4th of July holiday, Provo's Freedom Festival offers a variety of patriotic activities. Our favorite is Freedom Days on Provo's Center Street. Live music, food, kiosks, and activities!
