ITEM SUMMARY

Artwork, painting dedicated to POW*MIA service personnel listed on the Vietnam Veterans Memorial (VVM) and entitled, "THE DOOR" by Cedar Shoals High School (Athens, Georgia) student & artist Worth Parker. The painting is executed by-hand in various colors of acrylic [?] paint upon a sliding glass door panel and incorporates aesthetic motifs including: the national POW*MIA logo, Bell UH-1 Iroquois "Huey" helicopters, Grumman A-6 Intruder heavy strike aircraft, an impressionistic sunset, & a squad of seven (7) service personnel armed and exiting a troop transport. The painting also bears the hand-painted names of three hundred and sixty-seven (367) service personnel identified at the time of production as POW*MIA by the Department of Defense (DOD) and whose names are consequently listed on the Vietnam Veterans Memorial (VVM). Nine (9) additional names of individual service members are also listed on the artwork, but could not be located in the DOD Wall Memorial database. The painting was subsequently donated to L.Z. Friendly, who left the artifact at The Wall along with another artwork by Worth Parker entitled, "THE CAGE" (VIVE (7011)) on Veterans Day, November 11, 1990.
