"Poppies for Veterans: Symbols of Sacrifice"

Poppies have been a symbol for the sacrifices of veterans since the poem “In Flanders Field” was written in 1915. The poppies bloomed across some of the worst battlefields of Flanders in World War I; their brilliant red color becoming a symbol for the blood spilled in war.

Our Ceramics Department embarked on a massive effort to make several thousand red ceramic poppies inspired by the installation “Blood Swept Lands and Seas of Red” at the Tower of London in November, 2014.

The poppies were installed at ESAC, both inside and out, and at the Fairhope Veterans Memorial at Henry George Park on the bluff overlooking Mobile Bay on Veterans Day.

*** Poppies are now located at the Art Center and are still available for purchase : $20 each, or $50 for three. Stemless poppies are $10 each, $25 for three.***  Proceeds from the sale of poppies will be donated to selected LOCAL veterans organizations.
