Pamela's ArtPrize Seven (2015) Installation
Top 20 Finalist
Saluting Our Hometown Heroes
September 23 – October 11 • Amway Grand Plaza Hotel
Voted Top 20 Finalist and 3rd Place for Time-Based
ArtPrize Seven Top 20 installation, called Hometown Hero, highlighted local fallen soldier, Eric Burri. This interactive exploration gave individuals the opportunity to speak by writing the name of their hero on the 24 x 6 foot canvas. Thousands of visitors experienced healing as they connected with the work physically, intellectually, and emotionally. By saluting hometown heroes—ordinary people who display extraordinary commitment, love, and selflessness—we hold out truth for the next generation and pass on the healing torch.

ArtPrize Visitors Respond to Hometown Hero
I could not hold back my tears. Thank you so much for creating a work of art that we could all be a part of and leave our mark on… Pedro
Good art evokes emotion…you have done just that with your piece of work. Thank you. Lee Ann
All your ArPrize exhibits are the same. You believe in the value of people. Whoever they are. Whatever they have done.
This is what life is about. Honoring our heroes.
A special thank you to the Blue Star Mothers, Knights of Columbus, and the Patriot Guard Riders for their help and support in making Hometown Hero possible. Many individuals and business sponsors like Republic Services and Brann's Steakhouse & Grille donated generously to offset the costs of Hometown Hero.
