The Valor & Grace Nurse print represents one of the many healthcare workers whose selfless acts of compassion and service are always meaningful, but at this moment are especially heroic. I'm inspired to glorify those who don't seek glory, but rather to serve humanity when it is most challenged. I want the portrait to emanate the comforting warmth and empathy healthcare workers provide in the midst of anxiety and crisis. Dear Frontline currently has a #ProtectAllWorkers program, where you can send out customized postcards to frontline workers. Proceeds from the print sales will go to their new initiative, Dear Frontline Workers Public Art Fund, where they are raising funds are to produce large scale murals and displays of gratitude for frontline workers. Installations are planned near the hospitals that have been hardest hit by COVID-19 and in other public spaces. -Shepard
