“Who stands ready to take care of those men and women upon their return when they are all too often disabled, disillusioned, or disheartened?” pondered exhibition organizer Ella Rue, mother of a veteran, and Director of Marketing for Academic Programs and Events at New Jersey City University. “They leave and time has a way of standing still. Loved ones expect the same person to return, the same happy-go-lucky, gregarious person that went off to war so many months before.”
Reproductions of the artworks on view, in print and playing card form, have been sold to benefit veterans by helping them to further their education and assist with medical, dental or mental health resources. This fund has been supported by many world-renowned artists and illustrators who each created and donated an original editorial visual statement illuminating their thoughts on war and the service of veterans.
