Artist John Paul Schafer created a vibrant painting, “Badge of Courage,” in honor of the 10th anniversary of the Expressive Arts Gala and Tanager Place’s 140-year history. The original artwork was sold as part of a live auction at the 2019 Gala, the new owner generously allowing Tanager Place to currently display the piece. We are honored to offer signed, limited edition watercolor prints.
John Paul, who was part of our first Gala a decade ago, shares a passion for the work at Tanager Place. As he explains below, this piece tells a story.
