TITLE: “Victorian Light”
ARTIST: Thomas Kinkade
WHY WE CHOSE IT: Today is National Lighthouse Day, commemorating the Congressional Act of August 7, 1789, which established the federal creation and maintenance of lighthouses, buoys, beacons and public piers. Lighthouses have become historical symbols in America, signifying safety and security for boats at sea.
“I am intrigued by lighthouses. Erected in locations of great peril, they often stand in settings of remarkable beauty and drama as well. Where nature is most powerful, it can also be most majestic.” —Thomas Kinkade (1958-2012)
