Veteran art show Feb. 28 in SA
Artwork by local veterans will be on display to the public in the Audie L. Murphy Memorial Veterans Hospital at 7400 Merton Minter in San Antonio on Thursday, Feb. 28, from 10 a.m. to 12:45 p.m. It is estimated that more than 375 pieces of art, from 35 different categories, will be on display.
Local artists will judge the artwork earlier in the day to determine first-, second-, and third-place winners in each category. The first-place winning pieces will advance to the national level, to compete against entries submitted by veterans from other VA facilities around the country.
This competition, an annual event for veterans receiving treatment at VA facilities, affords veterans the opportunity to participate in creative self-expression through art, creative writing, dance, drama, and music as part of their therapy, and gain recognition for their artistic accomplishments.
