This pop-style depiction of the glass nose of a B-17 aircraft was part of Marjorie Nodelman’s (1950-2014) Military Industry Series and was featured in her solo showat OMA, Marjorie Nodelman: San Diego Artist (2016), curated by Doug Simay. Using military scenarios featuring characters from her daily life provided the artist a visual vocabulary to comment on the atrocities of the Vietnam war. Nodelman was a key figure amongst the group of artists who first launched the art scene in downtown San Diego, in what was to become the Gaslamp Quarter.
