Advocating Veteran Creativity
Mobile Museum of Art
Veteran Artist Program (VAP), founder BR McDonald is coming from New York to the Mobile Museum of Art to talk about art, war, and story-telling on June 5, 2014, for Artillery, a program on post-service creative process, healing, and advocacy. VAP, a 501c3 nonprofit, takes artists who are also veterans, and propels their work and career into the mainstream creative arts community through networking, mentorships, collaborations with professional artists, and original productions. Based in New York City, VAP creates programming across the country to expand the network and visibility of veteran artists. Come whether you are a veteran, and artist, or an advocate and find out how to support veteran art and create opportunities in your community. Presentation starts at 7pm, Light refreshments, beer and wine by donation.
ABOUT Thursday Nights: On Thursday evenings the art museum opens its galleries for an additional four hours, free of charge and courtesy of the City of Mobile. Programs in music, theater, film, design, visual arts, dance, literature, as well as culture and lifestyle are presented every Thursday night. Come get inspired with us, as well dig into the surface of things, just a little deeper.
