(November 11) SOLDIER IN ART The National Museum of American Jewish Military History in D.C. off R Street Northwest presents Arthur Szyk: Soldier in Art on Veterans Day from 1 to 3pm. The artist's ammo includes the anti-Nazi caricatures that made him famous during World War II. Fighting injustice and tyranny with his brush and pen, the art and message of Arthur Szyk are presented by Rabbi Irvin Ungar, followed by tours of the museum and a treasure hunt for children.
