The Moving Paintings from George W. Bush's Portraits of Courage Are On Display Now in Dallas
If that shiny new copy of Portraits of Courage on your coffee table just isn't enough, you're in luck. You can now experience the captivating artwork featured in President George W. Bush's new book Portraits of Courage, up close. The 66 full-color portraits and a four-panel mural of U.S. military veterans painted by the former president are on display at George W. Bush Presidential Center in Dallas through October 1.
"I painted these men and women as a way to honor their service to the country and to show my respect for their sacrifice and courage," Bush writes in the book's introduction. "I hope to draw attention to the challenges some face when they come home and transition to civilian life—and the need for our country to better address them."
President Bush will donate proceeds from the book to the non-profit organization that coordinates the Military Service Initiative. The proceeds will help veterans and their families as they transition into civilian life.
