As we continue to negotiate with our gallery contacts we need some insight and feedback from our fans and supporters. Since the beginning we have always stated that this project is a collective effort and that your input guides us in the required direction. We want to showcase artists from across the spectrum of military service, both the warfighter and the civilian family that served with them. We also want to include the art from contractors serving in a war zone, civilians and local nationals affected by not just the events of the past decade but from all conflicts, past and present, across the entire globe.
Finally, if you are simply interested in being a part of something worthwhile and growing and helping our veterans, warfighters and their families please email or call any of the given contacts throughout our website and this article. Many of our staff members have been instrumental in the focus of this project and all of them came through these channels.
Though November or even September may seem far in the future, the next few weeks and months will be gone before you know it. With that being said, please do not delay as we are counting on the support and participation of artists, galleries and our fans to ensure the success of this new facet of the project for years to come. If you have questions, comments or ideas please feel free, perhaps even obligated if that will motivate you, to send them to any of our staff, their full contact info and bios are on the “About Us/Partners” tab.
We have already accomplished some absolutely amazing feats during the past 18 months, all with the help, input and direct involvement of our fans and supporters. All of us are forever changed from what we have witnessed and experienced and grateful for the opportunity to serve again through seeing the creations of our fellow veterans. Our hope is to help fashion this project to change their lives as they have changed ours.
