    The Harold B. Lemmerman Gallery at New Jersey City University is pleased to host 52 Reasons to Love a Vet, a traveling exhibit that promotes awareness of the need for more comprehensive health coverage and education for veterans and raises funds to support the cause.

    With its numerical component representing the number of playing cards in a standard deck, 52 Reasons to Love a Vet consists of “playing cards” created by world-renowned illustrators specifically for this project. Playing cards, prints and posters of the images, and project books will be sold during the exhibition and are also available online.

    The project was developed by Ella Rue ’05 M.A., the mother of a two-time veteran. Admission fees will be donated to the NJCU Foundation and will benefit NJCU student veterans. All additional proceeds from sales of playing cards, limited edition prints and books will benefit the 52 Reasons to Love a Vet Fund launched in 2015 by the Hunterdon Healthcare Foundation.
