3D Exhibition: Liberty Tree in Sarasota, FL Designed for US Veterans' and their Families
Recalling the famous quotation by Thomas Jefferson,
" From Time to Time, the Tree of Liberty must be refreshed with the Blood of Patriots and Tyrants",
Art for After Hours Founder, 3D Street Artist Anthony Cappetto designed the 'Liberty Tree' as an exhibition work in Sarasota, FL with the team of Wendy Stum and Vero Gonzalez.
The artwork, measuring 15 feet across by 25 feet in length symbolized Jefferson's quote in our eyes and those of many Veterans and their families on exhibition day.
We had the Veterans and their families write the names of themselves, loved ones who served, and those who gave the ultimate sacrifice for their country. Every US war in modern times was represented from Afghanistan to World War I.
The exhibition was a continual stream of respect, emotion, remembrance, and honor. Art for after Hours will never forget this piece.
