In the future the Portraits of American Veterans will no longer be exhibited with the large, cumbersome, overdone profiles that appeared with the paintings in past exhibits. Most exhibition spaces are not large enough to show all of the paintings, much less the additional profiles. I will create new brief information cards that will not take up valuable wall space or distract from the paintings. In another words, the PAVP is moving into the next level of professional level presentation. There will be a notebook with the exhibits, providing freshly edited biographical info about each of the veterans. This will clean-up the overall look of the show and focus the viewer on the veterans and their images.
