WHERE HAVE ALL THE FLOWERS GONE

November 2, 2019 - February 8, 2020

PDNB Gallery’s Director, and Vietnam War veteran, Burt Finger, has organized a long awaited group exhibition dealing with the subject of war. Many photojournalists are included in this powerful exhibition, including LIFE photographer, Larry Burrows, who died in Vietnam. Where Have All The Flowers Gone, will be on view through February 8, 2020. Exhibition is free and open to the public. Various educational events throughout the show. Check www.pdnbgallery.com for updates.

The folk song by Pete Seeger tells the circular story of life, extracted from the novel, “And Quiet Flows the Don”. The lyrics evolved and the song remains one of the most popular anti-war songs in U.S. history. In brief, the circular tale goes like this:

Where have all the flowers gone? Girls have picked them every one.

Where have all the young girls gone? Gone to husbands every one.

Where have all the husbands gone? Gone for soldiers every one.

Where have all the soldiers gone? Gone to graveyards every one.

Where have all the graveyards gone? Gone to Flowers every one.

When will they ever learn?
