The entire gallery will be both online and in-person as of November 1st. Click HERE to learn more about this exhibition. The exhibition runs November 1, 2022 – November 30, 2022.
This exhibition features artwork of the 8th & I and Nations Capitol Young Marines, staff, family members, and workshop instructors/ volunteers. The Young Marines is a national youth program for boys and girls, ages eight through high school graduation, focused on leadership, citizenship through community service, self-discipline, and living a healthy, drug-free lifestyle. The artwork represents their participation in learning about the history of the Armed Forces Awards and Decorations followed by a session in creative writing to write about a decoration they created in clay for themselves and/or others. The meaning of their artwork is written on paper made by Frontline Paper Veterans from Marine uniforms from WWII to the present.
