Pop-Up Community Arts Cafe’ at Battleship IOWA
Join VET ART at Battleship IOWA for a FREE, interactive, and hands on day of art in support of mental health!
We invite you to join us for a one day event featuring curated California artists who have served in the United States Armed Forces alongside presentations from art & music therapists who work within the community.
February 19, 2022, 10 AM – 4 PM, aboard Battleship IOWA, 250 S. Harbor Blvd. Los Angeles, CA 90731.
As part of the event, an Invocation and Land Acknowledgement will be offered and a Listening Session will be moderated.
Event attendees will hear directly from artists about their process of art-making and the ways arts have directly improved their health, strengthening their sense of community, improving feelings of hope and purpose, and creating a means of creative and emotional expression. The art presented will include ceramics, traditional beadwork, spoken word, music, painting, and glass.
This event is brought to you through a statewide joint initiative between the Veterans Art Project (VetArt.org), a non-profit seeking to provide free art classes to veterans and their families, in support of and in collaboration with the Mental Health Services Oversight & Accountability Commission of California (MHSOAC). Additional regional sponsorship provided through our partners, the Military & Veterans Affairs department, Veterans West at Battleship IOWA.
