Crystal Bridges presents Portraits of Courage: A Commander in Chief’s Tribute to America’s Warriors, an exhibition which brings together full-color portraits painted by President George W. Bush that honor the sacrifice and courage of America’s military veterans since 9/11.
The exhibition rises from President Bush’s outreach and ongoing work through the Bush Center’s Military Service Initiative. It seeks to examine the invisible wounds veterans experience and the realities they face after returning home and beginning their transition from military service to civilian life. The artworks will be on view at Crystal Bridges for free in the Modern Art Gallery for a limited time this December and January.
