Artist John Ross Palmer Lays Wreath at the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier
The Escapism Founder, known for his renlentless pursuit to forever destroy the stereotype of the struggling artist, had 25 fans from around the USA join him to witness this solemn occasion. It was a dream come true for the patriotic philanthropist.
Palmer's wreath laying was sponsored by The First Class Club ("FCC"), the elite group of Palmer art collectors that sponsors his annual international trip and art series. Inaugural club members Judy Lindsay of Huntersville, NC and Julio Montano of Houston, TX were in attendance, and, following the ceremony, it was Lindsay that had the pleasure of announcing Palmer's 2019 destination:
"I have huge respect for our country's service members and words cannot express my appreciation for those making the ultimate sacrifice to preserve our freedoms," says Palmer. "My career is built upon the freedom of speech that is guaranteed by our Constitution. As I lay the wreath, I was exuding gratitude for the protections that our soldiers have given to me and millions of Americans."
Palmer and his team took painstaking detail to ensure that the ceremony was sufficiently dignified. Renowned floral designer Kevin Aubrey created Palmer's wreath that masterfully interwove both white roses and an abundance of yellow roses for the fifth generation Texan. The artist donned black leather gloves from Argentina, a custom suit with masterfully fitting black top coat and a black rabbit fur Russian Ushanka hat. Internationally acclaimed artist Elena Sandovici was present to capture the ceremony with her original sketches and watercolors. Documentarians Mike Williams and Evan Hambrick were present to preserve the occasion in photos and film.
