2019 Women’s Veteran Art Project and Exhibit
In 2017, VAP partnered with the Veterans Administration producing the first Women’s Veteran Art Exhibit. That event provided the inspiration for this 2019 Women Veteran Art Exhibit. In celebration of Veterans Month this year, the “VA Women Veterans Program Office” and WVAP will exhibit women veteran’s art with 15 VA facilities across the United States.
With the help of WVAP “ambassadors” (veteran artist representative volunteers) art exhibitions have been coordinated throughout the country representing women veterans from diverse art and military backgrounds, and using mediums from traditional fine arts (painting, sculpture) to quilting, weaving and poetry.
The goal of these exhibits is to engage VA stakeholders within the VA, bring together many women veterans and provide the public recognition of our women veteran’s service. Artists are pre-selected by WVAP, but local female Veterans, enrolled for VA health care, are also participating in some locations.
