Essex Garner talks about the items and paintings on display in the case behind him at the Missouri National Guard Headquarters. He and others have spent nearly a year recreating scenes to be photographed from which he would paint his detailed works. He brought students from Lincoln University, where he is a professor in the Visual and Performing Arts Department. The exhibit is titled “The Price for Our Freedom-A Tribute to the Colored Infantry Soldier” and is on display this month at the guard headquarters.
