Celebrating Veterans Through Art
All veterans – whether they fought in a war or not/whether they were drafted or volunteered – all served our country. That service deserves our respect and admiration. It also demands that those of us who benefitted from that service learn about it – and art plays a crucial role in that education. Art is a vehicle to tell veteran’s stories of service and sacrifice. Artists are a voice for veterans and provide us all with vehicles for remembrance. Event Purpose: to give veterans an opportunity to tell their stories of service through the arts – the written and spoken word, visual art and video, and the performing arts – and to give the community a chance to learn more about veterans and their experiences through art.
