This fine art print of artist Bradley J. Parrish original pastel which hangs on permanent display in the Statue of Liberty was created in 2001 to be used in raising money to help those Americans affected by the terrorist attacks on our country on September 11th, 2001. Brad was one of if not the first to offer up his art to aid in helping raise money for our country with this reproduction of his piece titled "Another Day of Freedom".

This original pastel which hangs in the base of the Statue of Liberty National Monument is part of the monuments permanent collection. The painting by the artist was one of the winning pieces selected by the "Arts For The Parks" national competition in 1989. The competition was open to artist across our nation to bring greater awareness of the beauty of our national parks. This piece toured our countries most prestigious museums across America for a year after the competition giving millions of Americans the opportunity to view the original artwork. This was the second time Brad had been chosen by "Arts For The Parks" and also the second time his painting was chosen to tour our country.

The National Parks Service in New York who is the caretaker the Statue of Liberty National Monument contacted Brad and asked if they could buy the piece for permanent placement in the statue. Brad refused to sell it to them but instead gifted it to them and our country in his grandmother's name. His grandmother an immigrant from Yugoslavia came to America as so many did with nothing but the clothes on their backs. She was only 15 years old when she arrived on American soil. And like so many immigrants she came hungry and afraid but hopeful for a new and better life. As a child, I remember her telling me stories of her coming here. When she saw the Statue of Liberty for the first time she broke down in tears. And always did if we talked about the subject again. A very hardworking and brave woman she was. Thanks to America and our forefathers she was able to truly know what freedom meant and she could never have lived life the way God had intended it to be lived from where she came. I know if she were alive today she would give anything for her country, she was that thankful. After she passed away in 1991, Brad put this original beside her casket on an easel, bent down kissed her on the forehead and said "This painting is my gift to you, grandma, you are the one who I thought of when I painted it. You were my inspiration for the painting. I am now going to give this painting to America from you grandma. I know you would have wanted me to to do that for you"  To this day this painting by artist Bradley J. Parrish resides on display in the Statue of Liberty National Monument Museum in New York.
