Gloucester Daily Times: Pictures of patriotism: Veterans draw themselves for museum project

September 3, 2021

Sitting perfectly still, with a cracked smile and caring eyes, Vietnam veteran Gerry Devoe posed for his 8-year-old granddaughter to color his portrait.

“Wow!” Cape Ann Museum Director Oliver Barker said while looking at the drawing. “Very accomplished, my goodness.” 

The drawing was one of many capturing the eyes, ears, nose, mouth and smiles of veterans who attended the Cape Ann Museum’s "Patriots, Portraits, and Picnics" this Tuesday on CAM Green off Poplar Street. Cape Ann veterans and the community were invited to join the museum for lunch and to draw their own self-portraits.
