WORDS FROM WAR
IRAQ & AFGHANISTAN VETERANS MONUMENT PROJECT
"Veterans of any conflict will know these words spoken through the universal language of art."
In October 2016, Ross Power joined the members of Vero Beach Veterans:Next Generation to create a memorial to honor the fallen and all those who have served in the Iraq & Afghanistan era conflicts.
Riverside Park - Vero Beach, Florida adjecent to the Vero Beach Museum of Art
Concrete, Stainless Steel, Core-10: 9 FT High x 18 FT in diameter
Ross Power interviewed combat veterans from these conflicts, creating a documented oral history. From these interviews he integrated words that best captured the emotion and recollection of these Soldiers, Sailors, Marines and Airmen.
Power said, "This sculpture is Word Art . The words are authentic, straight from the veterans mouth. As you walk into and through this "Memorial Sculpture,"you will also read inspiring & informing words that will enable you to feel the true impact of the veterans actual experience through there own words."
