CONNECTING ARTISTS & VETERANS

The Diane Kidd Gallery Tiffin University, Ohio is working to develop a project connecting artists and veterans. We’ve recruited twenty professional artists from around the country, and are working on finding twenty veterans who are interested in sharing their stories. We are in the process of interviewing veterans and sharing the audio recordings with our artists, who will create visual art based on the stories. The project will culminate in an exhibition here at Tiffin University (Ohio) in November. We will auction off prints of the art and the proceeds will go to charities of the participating veterans’ choice. We hope to then travel the show. We have thirteen veterans from different eras so far, but are looking to find veterans from different parts of the country and especially the Coast Guard. This project, Experience Veterans & Artists Collaboration (EVAC), has the support of the following organizations: · Cleveland VA Medical Center · Ohio Veterans Home · Ohio Department of Veterans Affairs · VFW – National · American Legion – National · Student Veterans of America (SVA) · Iraq and Afghanistan Veterans of America (IAVA) Please let me know if you know of any Coast Guard veterans who might be interested in participating. I have attached a one page description for your information. I look forward to hearing from you! Best, Lee Fearnside Director of the Diane Kidd Gallery Tiffin University, Ohio www.tiffin.edu/dianekiddgallery
