Blue Light Ceremony

Fallen but not Forgotten……

An invitation to a short service to remember all Fallen MT Law Enforcement -Reading of Fallen Officers Names- Lighting of tree with blue lights and hanging balls with fallen Officers names.

Tonight MT COPS, the state chapter of Concerns of Police Survivors welcomes each of you to this Blue Light Ceremony. Project Blue Light began in 1989 by Dolly Craig of Philadelphia, PA who put a blue light in her window to remember her son in law, Danny Gleason, a Philadelphia police officer who was killed in the line of duty in 1986. Dolly Craig shared her idea with COPS who in turn shared the idea with others.

Please consider shining a blue light during the holiday season to honor and remember law enforcement officers who have given the ultimate sacrifice, and to show support and thanks for those officers who continue to serve.

ekoh - Live Demonstration

ekoh, a new Member Artist, will be here live to give a demonstration and talk about his work.
Here is what ekoh has to say about his experience and philosophy:"I went to college in Paris, France, but not to learn art: I majored in literature and philosophy, and moved on to psychology, specializing in art therapy. While I was at it, why not sneak into the evening live figure sessions in the city’s renown art schools! I am self-taught, but I did benefit from 15 years living in France, steeped in a millennium of artistic "savoir-faire", Latin passion and blunt critical verve. Combining the flower of craftsmanship, the water of free spirit and the heat of creative fire is how I bake my daily bread, and I enjoy sharing it."
