Local Artist Donates Patriotic Prints
The Active Duty Rehabilitation Unit at the Uptown VA proudly displays local Augusta Artist, Jennifer Louthan's print titled, "September 11, 2001". Mrs. Louthan donated the print shortly after the opening of the Active Duty Unit almost 5 years ago. Her most recent donation of individually signed prints was made to 24 wounded warriors in late September 2010.
Mrs. Louthan dedicates her painting as a memorial to all those who died as a result of the World Trade Center and Pentagon terrorist attacks that took place on September 11, 2001.
Mrs. Louthan in her own words describes her art as: "The background is the symbol of freedom, the United States flag. The bald eagle, our national emblem, is in what I call "attack Mode". He has thrust aside peace, symbolized by the olive branch falling from his left talon. He has seized a bundle of arrows with is right talon to indicate preparations of war. The single arrow in his mouth indicates the unity of our country, every citizen standing together. There are 9 olives on the olive branch symbolizing the month of September. The eleven arrows collectively symbolize the 11th day."
