Members of the large art community of Nassau and Suffolk counties will be paying tribute to our nations wounded warriors as each of the participants will be making a very generous direct donation to the charity in addition to a portion of any sales of their artwork.

The exhibition will be professionally judged by Prof. Seung Lee of LIU Post College, Prof. Marc Kopman of the Hutton House Lectures/ LIU Post College and Dominick Totino - Official photographer for the Queens Borough President.
