Having begun in Charleston, South Carolina WE THE PEOPLE will tour nationally to several museums including the National Veterans Memorial and Museum, the Huntsville Museum of Art and the National Museum of the Marine Corps, near Washington DC. At each location, the Patriot Art Foundation will serve local veterans through special tours of the exhibition as well as offer classes geared toward self-expression and creativity.
In 2010, Mary Whyte set out on a mission to paint fifty watercolor portraits of what it means to be an American veteran today. The project was over seven years in the making, taking the artist across the entire United States, to meet and paint some of our country's truest patriots. Featuring current day veterans of all ages, all walks of life and from every state, Whyte's WE THE PEOPLE will be a national treasure that will honor and connect with our men and women in uniform for generations to come.
