Front Line Heroes Program


Our Heroes Program pairs a front line pandemic worker with an East End Arts Member Artist. The artist creates an intimate artwork from a photograph that is submitted by the Front Line Hero. The photograph can be whatever the worker chooses; self-portrait, portrait with others, a happy place of theirs, a pet or a family member, etc.. The artworks are created in the medium and genre that the artist chooses. There are many artists are participating in the program and creating artworks in oil, charcoal, and acrylic.
