Window of Heroes

Celebrating our Heroes

The Reedsport Memorial Weekend Committee is excited to announce our continuing art display, "Windows of Heroes", which will take place throughout the month of May local businesses. This project is aimed at honoring our local military heroes through creative expressions of art.

The display will showcase artwork from community members, as well as local students. In addition, photos of local veterans will be on loan from the senior center. The display will also feature "Hero Stars", which community members can nominate a hero to be recognized on a star.

Artwork submissions will be accepted at Umpqua Bank from April 1-30. The display will be open to the public starting May 1st.

Nominations for heroes and art submissions will open April 1, 2024

Calling All Local Artists

We have an exciting opportunity for you to showcase your creative talents and honor our service members and veterans this Memorial Day. The Reedsport Memorial Weekend Committee is calling on artists of all ages to submit their artwork to be displayed in community windows throughout the month of May.

Whether you're a student at Reedsport Community Charter School or an experienced artist in the community, we want to see your best work. We're looking for patriotic symbols, collages of gratitude, cardboard cutouts of service members, paintings and drawings paying tribute to service members, veteran portraits, and any other art made from different materials.

Don't miss this opportunity to show your support for our nation's heroes and showcase your artistic skills.

Let's come together as a community to honor those who have given so much for our country.

Do you have a special story about your hero? We are looking for heroes to spotlight so let us know when you fill out the form we may choose your hero to spotlight. Please note we will want permission from your hero to post any details about them beside the star in a window.
