2016 Patriot’s Mosaic Picture Submission Is Now Open!
Honor the veterans in your life, and help to create a unique artistic tribute to the brave men and women who have served our nation.
What is the Patriot's Mosaic?
Beginning in 2013 a series of ten mosaics will be produced, with a new design being unveiled each Veteran’s Day through 2022. On display at the Huntsville Depot Museum, each mosaic is a 15 foot x 15 foot patriotic image made up of 1296 5-inch square photographs of veterans that have been submitted by family and friends. The Visions of Vets Patriot’s Mosaic honors those who have served our country as a member of the armed forces. The images that have been submitted for the Patriot’s Mosaic Project are a cross section of our country’s military history and represent all branches of service and many of the wars and conflicts the USA has been a part of since the Revolutionary War. More important than the branch of service or the time each served are the individual stories of the veterans represented in these photographs. These are the faces of freedom…Americans who sacrificed all, so that others could live in a free and prosperous nation.
The first Mosaic was created in 2013 as a fund-raising project supporting the education initiative at The EarlyWorks Family of Museums, The Patriot’s Mosaic is produced in part through a partnership with theMadison County Commission.

The goal of this initiative is to create and maintain an esthetically pleasing and educational public access walkway between the grounds of the Historic Huntsville Depot and the Madison County Veteran’s Memorial.
On Veteran’s Day 2013 the Historic Huntsville Depot dedicated the Gothic Guild Patriot’s Gateway. The gateway officially connects the grounds of the Historic Huntsville Depot to the Madison County Veteran’s Memorial Park. Now visitors can walk from the Depot to the Veteran’s Memorial and learn from the seven educational kiosks that make up the Patriot’s Pathway.
The Patriot’s Mosaic Project is a primary element of the Pathway Initiative, and will help ensure an aesthetically pleasing transition for all those choosing to access the Veteran’s Memorial via the Pathway.
