Randy Ford Author – Architect-artist Neil Bernstein Drives “THE NEW LINCOLN VETERANS MEMORIAL” to VETERANS DAY RALLY at the PHOENIX VA
World-renowned architect-artist Neil Bernstein recently created a drivable sculpture called “THE NEW LINCOLN VETERANS MEMORIAL” that pays tribute to veterans and the health care system that serves them. Bernstein plans to drive his memorial from Tucson to Phoenix and with it participate in a Veterans Day Rally at the VA in Phoenix.
Bernstein based his work on personal experience and “rage” over at least 22 Veteran suicides per day in our country.
Bernstein calls his works “NEW DEMOCRATIC ART that goes to everyone … curators and keepers of The Sacred.” “THE NEW LINCOLN VETERANS MEMORIAL” is signed by Pentagon Colonels, World War Two B-17 Pilots, C.I.A. Spooks, Airborne , Special Ops ,Korea, Vietnam, Desert Storm, Iraq, Afghanistan, Syria and every other kind of Veteran-including Latinos, African Americans and Native Americans. Bernstein says, “this is Veterans art made by guys who have been shot, tortured, disowned, rejected, arrested and thrown into jail and institutions by the very society they or we (Neil is a veteran who served in Germany) sacrifice our minds, well-being and lives to protect.”.
