Hometown Hero

Pamela Alderman's avatar Pamela Alderman

Hometown Hero is touchable art. The work invites involvement. By adding a name, date, or tiny doodles to the stars and stripes, visitors have an opportunity to commemorate the life of their hero. Not every hero wears a uniform or a red cape. Sometimes a small act of kindness goes unnoticed. Let’s salute our hometown heroes—ordinary people who display extraordinary commitment, love, and selflessness.
