This Eugene Savage mural was used as a study for the much larger glass mosaic on permanent display at the American Cemetery in Epinal, France.

A Priceless Piece of History in the Court House

Beyond our normal business in Monday’s session, your Commissioners Court voted to accept a very special gift from the Military Heritage Collection.
Mark Witham, the museum’s founder, has offered to loan the county the “crown jewel” of his collection for temporary display this spring.
Soon, at a date still to be determined, the whole county will be able to view this Eugene Savage mural once used in preparation of the much larger glass mosaic on permanent display at the American Cemetery in Epinal, France.
Richard Ray of Fox 4 News reported on the Collection’s new addition two weeks ago. You can watch the story here to get more details.
 The piece has been in storage for decades, so you can be among the first to see it in person since the 1950s.
