The Dustoff Memorial, a special bronze sculpture by Cañon City artist Robert Henderson, will be on display at the Sangre de Cristo Arts Center (210 N. Santa Fe Ave., Pueblo, sdc-arts.org) now through Veterans Day. From the Sangre's press information:

The sculpture portrays a solider carrying an injured comrade to an awaiting Huey helicopter. The Huey is credited with saving 900,000 lives in the 11 years of the Vietnam conflict. Nearly 1/3 of the helicopter pilots were injured during these missions.

Henderson will give a free lecture on his art, which focuses on honoring veterans, Mon., Nov. 14, 9:30 a.m., at the center.
