Glen Cove Salutes

 

The Glen Cove Salutes Program is a joint endeavor of the Glen Cove Public Library and the City of Glen Cove’s Veterans Services to honor our residents’ beloved Veterans, Active-Duty, Reserve, and National Guard members with beautiful military banners displayed in Morgan Memorial Park in Glen Cove. This is our way of saying "Thank You" to the brave men and women of our great United States military.

 

CAPS for HOPE

CAPS for HOPE is a community-based art project sponsored by Glen Cove Salutes to honor Glen Cove veterans through the power of art. Amanda Fisk, the Library's Artist in Residence and Michael Danchalski, local architect and veteran, were commissioned to design and build the artwork in commemoration of the program's third anniversary. Neighbors and friends came together to create a four-panel “HOPE” mural using recycled plastic caps and lids collected by Glen Cove residents of all ages. This exhibition not only showcases the remarkable artwork produced through this collaborative effort but also emphasizes the importance of environmental stewardship and community engagement. By highlighting the intersection of art, recycling, and veteran support, we aim to inspire hope and ignite positive change within our community and beyond. The mural was displayed at the Glen Cove Public Library in March, the Glen Cove Senior Center in April, Friends Academy in May, and the Glen Cove High School in June. It is slated to travel to various locations throughout the city in the coming months.
