Title: Family Over Everything

Theme: Veterans Day

Special thanks to the following veterans for visiting our workshop and speaking; Tom Farr (WWII) and Andy Olson (Vietnam War), Staff Sergeant Wilson, Lieutenant Rollins, and Katrina Fraife.

Sponsor and Workshop Host: The Brown v. Board of Education National Historic Site

What is your artwork about? When the Veterans were talking to us they talked a lot about family and how people in their unit were their brothers and sisters. So we took Kansas Basketball’s Thomas Robinson’s idea of Family Over Everything (FOE). We incorporated American pride and Symbols in it. 

If you could pick anywhere for this artwork to be exhibited what place(s) would you pick? Texas or Chicago
