Jim Fallon’s “Heaven, Hell or Hoboken: Monoprints on Combat Paper”
November 11, 2019 @ 8:00 am - December 23, 2019 @ 5:00 pm
The Hoboken Historical Museum is pleased to commemorate the centennial of Armistice Day, the end of World War I, with the opening reception for a WWI-inspired art exhibit by veteran Jim Fallon: “Heaven, Hell or Hoboken: Monoprints on Combat Paper.” The reception is Sunday, Nov. 11, 6 – 8 pm, and the show is on view in the Upper Gallery through December 23.
The exhibit comprises 15 works of art, most inspired by the 100th anniversary of America’s participation in World War I, 1917 – 1918. The name of Fallon’s show is inspired by General Pershing’s famous rallying cry to the troops, “Heaven, Hell or Hoboken,” near the close of the war, as Hoboken served as the main port of embarkation and return.
