Twin brothers Adrian and Alexander Smith have enjoyed learning about the history of the Civil War since they were children. The Smith brothers were history majors at the New Mexico Military Institute and for a time even considered joining the United States military. They always had a passion for drawing and when Alexander came to Parsons to study the art of illustration in 2008, Adrian followed a year later. Now as recent Parsons Illustration graduates, the Smith twins combined their passion for history and military with their love of art to direct the animated short film “The Wheatfield,” a historic fictional take on the Battle of Gettysburg. The film premiered at the Visitor Center in Gettysburg, PA, on the 150th anniversary of the Battle of Gettysburg.
