The Special Relationship Project: 
Engaging the Next Generation of Churchillians through Art
Opens March 5

Two words: Special. Relationship. How would you depict that concept on a 6" x 6" canvas? 
When Sir Winston Churchill delivered his historic address at Westminster College in Fulton, Missouri, on March 5, 1946, he coined the phrase "special relationship" referring to the alliance between Great Britain and the United States.

For Churchill, alliances were critically important. His Fulton speech, now known at the 'Iron Curtain' speech, was given the title "Sinews of Peace." Sinews are tissues or tendons that bind muscle and bones together. They make us stronger. So do alliances and special relationships. As part of its 50th anniversary celebration, America's National Churchill Museum invited 4,037 K-12 public and private school students from Mid Missouri to paint or draw the concept special relationship.

The Noel Mander Organ at 
St. Mary the Virgin, Aldermanbury

"I saw them all burn, and it is a sensation I will never forget-hearing the bells fall down the tower, hearing the organs burn, because the hot air blowing through the organ pipes almost sounded as if the poor old organs were shrieking in agony in their destruction."
Those were the sights and sounds a young soldier named Noel Mander could not forget of the horrible night of December 29, 1940, when German planes bombed London, and he watched his own church, St. Vedast-alias-Foster, as well as the Church of St. Mary the Virgin, Aldermanbury, engulfed in smoke and fire.
