Oklahoma Artist Eric Humphries To Discuss Work at Midwest City Library


The Vietnam War continues to haunt the memory of those who fought in it and their families.  Oklahoma artist Eric Humphries used a group of letters written home from the war by his father as inspiration for a series of paintings collectively called “Unfortunate Son.”  The paintings will continue on display at the Midwest City Library, 8143 E. Reno through May 29.  For details, please call the library at 732-4828.

“We feel really honored to have Mr. Humphries visit the library on Sunday, May 19,” said librarian Ajax Delvecki.  “He’ll be here to talk about his work from 3:00 to 4:00p.m.  The event is free and open to the public.”
