The exhibit has already traveled thousands of miles from the Patriot’s Outpost of PGA Sawgrass, to 10 Starbucks locations across the country; to Broadway; to the USS Intrepid; and to many VA medical centers.
The Women Veterans Art Exhibit is a collaboration between VA’s Center for Women Veterans and the Veteran Artist Project. The traveling exhibit features the art of 10 women Veterans selected from more than 100 women Veterans and 400 submissions.
Women’s Memorial’s President Dee Ann McWilliams will provide opening remarks and set the stage for Kayla Williams, the director of the Center for Women Veterans. Pamela Corwin, a biologist and Army Veteran, whose artwork is a part of the exhibit will also speak.
The Women’s Memorial is conveniently located near the Arlington Memorial Metro stop and just outside the gates of Arlington National Cemetery. There is no cost to attend the event.
Veterans and the public are encouraged to celebrate women Veterans’ creative expression at the only major national memorial honoring all women who have defended America throughout history.
For those who cannot attend the Arlington event, a complete schedule of locations and more information is available on the 2017 Women Veterans Art Exhibit page.
