Frequently Asked Questions:

What is the Patriot’s Mosaic?
The Patriot’s Mosaic will be a 15 foot x 15 foot image made up of nearly 1300 individual 5-inch square photographs of veterans. Standing a few feet in front of the wall the viewer will see rows and columns of photographs. Standing a further distance away, the viewer will notice an image taking shape. Standing much further away, the viewer will see a patriotic image.

Where is the Patriot’s Mosaic located?
The Mosaic will be displayed on the grounds of the Historic Huntsville Depot Museum at 320 Church Street, in downtown Huntsville. It will be near the Gothic Guild Patriot’s Gateway entrance of the Huntsville Madison County Veteran’s Memorial.

When will the Patriot’s Mosaic be on display?
The Mosaic will be unveiled and dedicated on Veteran’s Day, 2013.

How long will the Patriot’s Mosaic be on display?
The mosaic will be up for at least one year. Our plan is to unveil a new mosaic each year.

How do I get a photo in the Patriot’s Mosaic?
The deadline for submissions to the 2013 Mosaic has passed. Please join us for the unveiling on November 11, 2013 at the Depot after the Veteran's Parade.

When is the deadline for uploading a picture?
We will be collecting pictures until September 30, 2013 or until we receive 1300 images.

Does the person in the photo have to be in uniform?
Photos in uniform are preferred, but others will certainly be accepted.

Can the picture be of someone standing up or does it need to be a close-up of their face?
The best pictures will be those considered headshots (shoulders & head). Since the individual pictures will be 5 inches square, close-ups will work best.

Can I submit more than one picture of the same person?
Yes you certainly can, but it will need to be a different photo. For example submit one in a dress uniform and the second one in a daily uniform.

Is there a limit to the number of veterans each person can send in?
No, honor as many veterans as you have pictures of.

Do the photographs have to any particular size?
Yes. The pictures must be at least 5 inches by 5 inches (1.5mb) and have a resolution of 300dpi

The picture I have is in black and white, does that matter?
Absolutely not, we can use either color or black and white pictures.

Does the person in the photo have to be living?
No. The only requirement is that they have served, or are serving, our nation in one of the branches of the military.

The
Patriot’s Pathway
Initiative

The goal of this initiative is to create an esthetically pleasing public access walkway between the grounds of the Historic Huntsville Depot and the Madison County Veteran’s Memorial.

In early 2013 the Historic Huntsville Depot received a grant from the Gothic Guild to fund the construction of a gateway between the Depot grounds and the Madison County Veteran’s Memorial. The Gothic Guild Patriot’s Gateway is currently under construction and scheduled to be completed by Veteran’s Day 2013.

The Patriot’s Mosaic Project is a primary element of the Pathway Initiative, and will help ensure an aesthetically pleasing transition for all those choosing to access the Veteran’s memorial via the Pathway.
