WW1 America Mural Project

full mural with three panels together

Our 30-foot WW1 America mural depicts 100 key individuals who influenced post-war America. Come see artist David Geister create this 3-section mural before your eyes.

Geister will be painting the mural through the end of August, and it will remain on view through November 11, 2017.


The Pantheon de la Guerre inspired this project. Originally painted in France during the war, the painting was 45 feet high and 402 feet long and depicted nearly 5,000 figures that played a prominent role in WWI. A portion of that painting is on view at the National World War I Museum in Kansas City.

The Minnesota Historical Society commissioned artist David Geister to create the mural, to complement the WWI America exhibit at the Minnesota History Center. The key individuals in the mural were chosen by MNHS staff, in consultation with historians and the general public.
