Mission of Compassion

This painting has been donated by the artist to the Coast Guard Art Program (COGAP) Collection 2011. The image is of the USCG mission of humanitarian relief to aid the victims of the Haitian earthquake in January, 2010. COGAP Collection 2011 will have its inaugural exhibition at Salmagundi Club, 47 Fifth Avenue, NYC, July 3 to 15, 2011. Free and open to the public daily, 1:00 to 5:00 p.m. Coast Guard artists are volunteer, professional artists who donate their time and talents to immortalize the brave men and women of the USCG through their art. Today, the collection comprises nearly 1,800 works which recount the Coast Guard's history from the early beginnings of our nation to the present day. Artists have also captured the daily missions the 42,400 men and women on active duty in the Coast Guard perform, including homeland security, search and rescue, marine environmental protection, and drug interdiction.
