Boston: Hope Lives On

Painting, Oil on Canvas

Donated by Evan Gildersleeve

“Boston: Hope Lives On This piece is a representation of the spirit of Mondays events. With each blast my heart perished, yet was saved by the selfless acts of the citizens of Boston that came to the aid of their fellow man. Their selfless acts gave me hope. Disregarding their own well-being the risked life and limb to save the hopes, dreams and lives of all who watched. I too watched what was happening, drawing parallels to my experience in Ramadi, Iraq in 2008, and for the past week have felt so helpless. I want to donate this painting in full to helping the victim’s medical bills, if possible, and end this helpless feeling inside.” – Evan Gildersleeve
