Scuttlebutt Ep 33: Capturing the Corps through Art with Kris Battles and Elize McKelvey

Scuttlebutt loves good stories and Kris Battles, the Artist in Residence of the Marine Corps, and combat artist Elize McKelvey join us in studio to talk about capturing the Corps through combat art. We learned a lot, from their Marine Corps journeys, to what art captures that photography doesn’t, why the Marine Corps has an art program and so much more. We hope you enjoy this special peak at a highly visible, yet relatively unknown corner of the Corps.

The views and opinions expressed on Scuttlebutt are those of the individuals and do not reflect the official position of the Marine Corps Association.
