Event Details

In celebration of Armed Forces Day, we invite you to the opening of the visual exhibition POWER TO THE PEOPLE: The Bill of Rights, an exhibit of local veteran artists interpreting the first 10 articles in the Bill of Rights.

A civic lesson within an art exhibit, POWER TO THE PEOPLE contains ten pieces by Tampa Bay area veterans who were each assigned one article of the Bill of Rights to inspire an original work of art. 

You will see deeply personal artistic meditations by women and men who serve in the armed forces to protect these rights.

Produced in conjunction with James A. Haley Veterans Affairs Hospital, POWER TO THE PEOPLE is presented as part of Straz Salutes, our program offering opportunities for veterans and their families to connect with the arts.

Live music and light refreshments will be provided.

Opening remarks will be followed by a performance from the Amputee Color Guard. Presentation and refreshments will take place under the Riverwalk tent.
