What's the F*****g point of keeping all these fantastic pieces of art hidden away? They should build a proper Armed Forces museum preferably in Washington DC, and display this artwork for the world to see!
Anyways, whose dumb idea was this to keep this away from art lovers and the public at large? Is there a hidden agenda?
I'll take trees over a collection of weapons and art glorifying war.

It's "phoenix" not "pheonix".
At the age of 18, Adolf Hitler applied to the Academy of Fine Arts in Vienna but was rejected. A number of Hitler’s paintings were seized by the U.S. Army at the end of World War II and found a home at the center. None of the confiscated Nazi art has ever been displayed, and the curators thought them too controversial for this piece. The scene above was filmed at the center for the documentary The Rape of Europa.
