Celebrating the end of World War II

The massive, somber World War II Memorial in Washington, DC can be visually overwhelming, as befits a war that involved most of the planet. Where to look?

This panel by artist Ray Kaskey is one of the 24 bas-relief sculptures near the entrance. One of a series of panels that depict the efforts on the homefront, it shows euphoric Americans jitterbugging to celebrate the end of the war in the Pacific.
