By Precious D. Freeman
A group under the banner ‘Voices of Elders of Liberia’ made a field trip to Salala, Bong County on a sight-seeing to showcase Liberia’s culture.
Speaking on behalf of the group, the chairlady Maureen-Hutchinson Johnson said the trip was intended to showcase the culture of Liberia, its heritage as well as the Liberian History.
According to her, upon their arrival, the team was able to meet with an artist called Dorothy Moore who is little known in Liberia for her artistic work, and she showed them her collection of art works.
She added that some of the art works shown to them by artist Moore was past Presidents and Vices; former warlords and historical places, heroes and heroines; former statesmen and women, peace keepers who assisted with the Liberian Civil war, icons and patriots of Liberia, among others.
For his part, the Chairperson of the Board of Directors of the Environmental Protection Agency, Rupel Marshall, appreciated the level of work done by artist Moore for her painting and collection of other historical images of patriots.
However, he encouraged artist Moore to showcase the center by inviting schools, students from universities at Monrovia and other areas.
Responding to the team, artist Moore appreciated them for their visit, saying that she has the passion for the art works, and that she inherited the building from her late father where she kept her painting materials, but was later confronted by the government.
Artist Moore indicated that all of her paintings and collections have been done by her without support from anyone.
