A week before we celebrate Independence Day, St. Peters Cultural Arts Centre will be honoring veterans in its own way by bringing “The Freedom Endeavor” Art Exhibit to St. Peters beginning June 28, 2018.
This powerful, interactive exhibit will feature large, 24x36” framed black and white photographs of veterans as you might see them currently, in everyday civilian life, holding a photo of themselves while they were serving the military. You will also be able to watch a video or read about each individual veteran’s story on the exhibit’s website, www.freedomendeavor.org
. The exhibit will remain on display at the Cultural Arts Centre through Aug. 19.
Photographer Steve Snyder started the project to raise awareness of who our nation’s veterans are and to “honor and preserve the legacy of America’s veterans,” according to the website.
“The Freedom Endeavor recognizes the contributions of everyday citizens who have served in the U.S. military,” Snyder says. “We see them every day, we meet them on the street, at the market, but how do we distinguish the people responsible for our freedoms and liberties? The Freedom Endeavor honors these veterans through the use of dramatic artistic photography as well as audio/video and text media.”
Snyder will be present for the exhibit’s opening reception from 6-7:30 p.m. Thursday, June 28, at the Cultural Arts Centre.
The St. Peters Cultural Arts Centre is in the west wing of St. Peters City Hall at One St. Peters Centre Blvd., St. Peters, MO.
