Faces of the Fallen: Women Proudly Served by Alicia Christy,
Uniting US is pleased to announce the introduction of our Humanitarian Arts program where Uniting US Professional Art Mentors, military, veterans, and their families artists can create artwork to support humanitarian initiatives.
Leading the kickoff to our newest program is nationally recognized sculpture artist (and Uniting US Professional Mentor ) Austin Casson and Marine veteran artist Maria Carrion. Combined, Austin's Forever Free ,33" stainless steel sculpture, and Maria's For the Children 20"x20" painting represent the people of the Ukraine and the infrastructure and facilities damage as well as the loss of loved ones impacting all living and future generations to come.
Forever Free and For the Children artworks are being prepped for public auction in DC in late June, 2022. All proceeds from the purchase of these and other Ukrainian supportive artworks are designated to Ukrainian relief support. Artists or art collectors interested in joying the Uniting US Humanitarian Ukrainian Cause program can contact US via the UnitingUS@yahoo.com e-mail.
Policy Vets (Policyvets.org) podcasts focus on highly relevant topics that impact veterans lives. Uniting US The Honorable David Shulkin, Lou Celli, and AnnMarie Halterman discuss the healing and wellness aspects of therapeutic arts and the phenomenal community building success through all forms of art.
