Take Me Home Huey is an art experience dedicated to Americans that served in the Vietnam War. Artist Steve Maloney partnered with Light Horse Legacy, a non-profit outreach organization supporting veterans with Post-Traumatic Stress (PTS), to create a 47-foot mixed-media sculpture made from a re-purposed U.S. Army Huey helicopter shot down in Vietnam. It’s a colorful ambassador – literally and figuratively – and a catalyst for conversations for veterans from all conflicts. Take Me Home Huey promotes healing and aims to bring awareness to PTS, and is dedicated to the 2,709,918 Americans that served in Vietnam and never received a welcome home.
The sculpture will be installed in the Museum parking lot, complemented by a multi-day screening of the award-winning documentary Take Me Home Huey documentary and other veteran-focused programming.
Admission to the Nevada Museum of Art, and to all Take Me Home Huey programs over the three days, will be free for veterans and active service men and women.
