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. Currently 10 artists are participating in the program and creating artworks in oil, charcoal, and acrylic.
The launch of this program was announced today with a roll-out of completed artworks thus far by means of display in the lobby of the Peconic Bay Medical Center in Riverhead, NY.
