A Tribute to Veterans: Veterans Day 2020

On this day, we want to thank all veterans for their service and recognize some of the Dixie Art Colony artists that served in the United States military. Due to the COVID-19 Pandemic, we canceled our 2020 Annual Veterans Day Exhibition. This year would have been our fourth annual exhibition held in conjunction with Trinity Episcopal Church's Annual Musical Tribute to Veterans. As a result of this cancelation, we are sharing a few photographs from previous years.

Thank you to Trinity Episcopal Church, Wetumpka for partnering with us.  Follow this link to view Trinity Episcopal Church's six-handed version of "The Stars and Stripes Forever."

During WWI, Dixie Art Colony Cofounder John Kelly Fitzpatrick received the “Presidential Wound Certificate.” (What is today the “Purple Heart”)
