NEW YORK (WABC) – Tunnel to Towers has partnered with artist Scott Lobaido to honor frontline heroes battling coronavirus. The artwork is called “Sunrise: A Tribute to First Responders” .

Lobaido says the painting depicts the heroes of the pandemic, raising a tattered American flag at sunrise as the bottom of the mast blocks the coronavirus in the ground.

“Every individual here is someone I know who this hero is – a firefighter, a cop, the military, a medic, EMT. They came to my studio in my backyard – I installed a pole and put it in the right place. So it’s more personal than a simple painting, they are the real heroes of the day, “said Lobaido.

Proceeds from the sales will be used to finance the Tunnel to Towers COVID-19 Heroes Fund.
