National Veterans Art Museum Triennial Veteran Art Summit: On War & Survival

  • National Veterans Art Museum (map)
  • Google Calendar ICS

With a focus on the visual, literary, performative and creative practices of veterans, the National Veterans Art Museum Triennial explores a century of war and survival while challenging the perception that war is something only those who have served in the military can comprehend.

Throughout history, art has provided a frame to create meaning out of the complicated experience of war, seek justice and imagine reconciliation. The NVAM Triennial draws on this history to connect today’s veteran artists with the history of veteran creative practices and their impact on society over the past century. The NVAM Triennial exhibition opening coincides with the Veteran Art Summit featuring a series of presentations, workshops, panels, and discussions on May 3–5 at the Chicago Cultural CenterNational Veterans Art Museum, and the DePaul Art Museum.

All the program and exhibition spaces are wheelchair accessible. The NVAM strives to make the NVAM Triennial and Veteran Art Summit as accessible as possible. Please contact Aaron Hughes <ahughes@nvam.org> if you have any specific needs.
