America the Beautiful

Operation Grateful Nation is a national program that is part of a partnership between Ford Motor Company Fund and Project S.N.A.P. designed to give participants the opportunity to thank members of the military for their service and commitment.

This poster reproduction of the giant 5’x9′ mosaic mural is inspired by “America the Beautiful” and was put on display at the Pentagon from 2013-2014 before reaching its final home at the Boulder Crest Retreat for Military and Veteran Wellness, a rural sanctuary for military and veteran personnel.

The mosaic mural was created from nearly 6,000 artworks contributed by high school students and military families. Participants created artworks and wrote artist’s statements reflecting on the importance of expressing gratitude for the service and sacrifice that members of the military and their families give for their country.  A copy of each artwork created was also mailed to active duty military serving overseas as part of their holiday packages.
