November Art Exhibit: The Faces of Freedom – Photographs & Oral Histories of U.S. Military Veterans
Our November exhibit features The Faces of Freedom by Walter Schuppe. It is a collection of photographs and stories of U.S. military veterans. Walter began this project in July of 2019 to express gratitude to, and honor the sacrifices and service of U.S. military veterans and their families. The project uses black and white portraits and oral histories, as told by each veteran, to help connect a face with a personal story. Each story captures not only their recollections of their time in the service, but also their memories of their childhood, their life after the military and what it meant to each of them to be part of something bigger than themselves and to be in the service of others. You can learn about all 105 veterans that participated in this project at https://www.facesoffreedom.us/. If you are a veteran and would like to tell your story, or if you know a veteran that would like to participate in this project, you can contact Walter by email (firstname.lastname@example.org) or phone (860-558-1072).
This powerful and moving exhibit will be on display for the month of November. We can’t think of a better way to recognize Veteran’s Day this month than to stop by our Gallery and see Walter’s work.
