Beyond the Call of Duty

Acrylic, vinyl, and brushed aluminum

Commissioned by the Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas in appreciation for veterans and military spouses

Beyond the Call of Duty is a quilt, piecing together unique fragments to make a unified whole. It is rooted in tradition, comfort, security, and protection.


Beyond the duty we all share to respect one another and the laws of our beautiful
country, there are those who answer the call to serve and put their lives on the line to protect and defend the values that make us great.

 

Behind them are families who selflessly support them, bound together in uncommon devotion like a vast quilt whose warmth embraces us all.
