Air Station Miami crewmembers conduct search and rescue training exercises on Biscayne Bay. In order to be prepared for emergencies occurring at any time, crewmembers routinely complicate training exercises by performing them at night. Here a Dolphin helicopter flies low over turbulent water while the Miami skyline appears like a string of pearls in the distance.

Coast Guard Art Program 2017 Inaugural Exhibit Reception
Start Time: 6:30 PM
End Time: 9:00 PM
Venue: Salmagundi Club

The Coast Guard Art Program (COGAP)—celebrating its 35th anniversary this year—is a partnership between the Coast Guard and the Salmagundi Club, a New York City artistic and cultural center for more than 140 years. Navy League, New York Council is once again proud to host the annual reception for the Inaugural Exhibit of this year's additions to the collection.

The program uses fine art as an outreach tool for educating diverse audiences about the United States Coast Guard. Through displays at museums, libraries and patriotic events, Coast Guard art tells the story of the service's missions, heroes and history to the public. Art is also displayed in offices of members of Congress, senior officials of the executive branch of government and other military services and at Coast Guard locations throughout the country.

Coast Guard artists—most of whom are professional artists—volunteer their time and talents to help COGAP fulfill its missions. Today, the collection comprises nearly 2,000 works which are primarily paintings. These capture the daily missions the 40,400 men and women on active duty in the Coast Guard perform, including homeland security, search and rescue, marine environmental protection, drug interdiction, military readiness and natural resource management. Other works depict sea and air assets.
