Tony Falcone: Creating the Art for the United States Coast Guard Historical Murals Project

Connecticut Artist Tony Falcone will share his artistic process in the creation of the oversized, detailed and historically accurate oil paintings (each approximately 9’ x 11’) that comprise the Historical Murals Project commissioned by the U.S. Coast Guard Academy Alumni Association, Class of ’62. Falcone’s paintings tell the story of the U.S. Coast Guard from 1940 through September 11, 2001 (“9/11”), depicting both its recognized role in daring maritime rescue operations as well its relatively unknown but critical role in major United States military engagements. During his presentation, Tony will focus particularly on the process he follows in the creation of several of these exhibited artworks, including his 3-D models, on-site research and photography, use of re-enactors, sketches and patterns, as well as the stages of the oil paintings themselves.
