Discover "52 Reasons to Love a Vet" at the Hunterdon Art Museum, a project designed to bring attention to the needs of veterans returning from service, which runs until July 24.
The exhibition at the Hunterdon Art Museum showcases 21 works that consist of playing cards with illustrations created by prominent artists to raise money for "52 Reasons to Love a Vet" fund. The program helps eligible veterans of the U.S. Armed Services with health care, dental needs and educational opportunities.
The exhibition encourages the public to appreciate the enormous sacrifices that veterans have made for their country, and to educate on the many challenging issues they face when returning home and trying to reintegrate into society.
Artists represented in the show include Gail Anderson, past art director for Rolling Stone Magazine; Steve Brodner, political cartoonist; and Mike Wimmer, illustrator for Disney's Lion King CD, as well as the creator of the image of Mr. Clean.
