Meet Artist Richard DeRosset
Wed Jan 10
Veteran’s Museum at Balboa Park
2115 Park Blvd. (619-239-2300)
Museum Senior admission $5.00 - Veterans are $4.00
The museum has permanent and rotating exhibits of patriotic, military and war-related objects, photos and art. It is decorated in wall murals and paintings depicting military subjects. Seven of the murals were painted by Navy veteran, Richard DeRosset. On this visit we will be privileged to meet and hear him speak on his murals and his experiences at sea. He is a great story teller. Before beginning a painting, he researches it. In fact, he spends as much time in research as he does while actually painting. His work is displayed in the United States, United Kingdom, France, Mexico, the Vatican, Republic of Malta and Russia, many museums including the Smithsonian, Naval War College and our own Maritime and Aerospace Museums. Join us for this interesting program. You can remain after his talk and visit this museum.
