Decades of Conflict: World War II to Present
Fallbrook Art Center pays tribute to our country’s military with a compelling, compassionate look over the past 67 years of American military involvement.

The role of the military is an integral part of Fallbrook’s history with USMC Camp Pendleton serving as our western border. The base was established in 1942 to train U.S. Marines for service in World War II and by October 1944, Camp Pendleton was declared as a "permanent installation". In 1946, it became the home of the 1st Marine Division and continues in that role today.

Decades of Conflict explores the period 1941 – 2008 and the many realities of war experience during that time; from those who fought, to those at home, and the undeniable influence on all our lives. Through the language of art, the exhibition seeks to engage the public in a broad-based dialogue that promotes awareness, understanding, and healing. The show includes military artifacts, personal photos and stories, as well as historical and contemporary works of art. The community and show visitors are invited to add their own photos and stories from the period to a timeline wall that will grow throughout the show.

Collaborative Partners:
USMC Camp Pendleton, Fallbrook’s VFW Post 1924, Fallbrook Chamber of Commerce, and Fallbrook Historical Society

The materials incorporated to embellish the pieces range from acrylic paints, gold-leaf, dyes & waxes to accessories such as bone, cane, coins, eucalyptus pods, feathers, glass beads, hemp twine, leather, leaves, Pakistani grass, palm fronds, pine needles, raffia & shells … the list is only limited by the artists’ imaginations!
