22 VA: Veterans Art Exhibit

12/09/17 09:00AM - 06:00PM

22 VA: Veterans Art Exhibit - Main Library Gallery

View a wide range of artistic expression, all created by our Veterans. Some were artists before, some are using art to understand their military experience.  A reception for the artists will be held on Saturday, December 9 from 1:00 to 3:00 p.m. and the public is invited to come and meet the artists. The exhibit is organized by 22VA, a group of talented Veteran Artists that want to help other Veterans express themselves through visual and creative arts. 22 VA wants to help reduce the number of Veteran suicides, which claim  the lives of 22 veterans a day. This equates to around 30 suicides per 100,000 veterans, a rate that is more than double the rate for the civilian population.

Location: Peoria Public Library - Peoria, Illinois
