ACHF Arts Access
Veteran programs and art are seldom paired. Red Wing Arts Association, working with the Veterans Affairs and veteran groups, will provide 35+ veterans a six day arts experience. The primary evaluation of this outcome is in the number of veteran participants. Our goal is to have at least 35 participants. 2: The Red Wing Arts Association, working with the Veteran's Art Project Committee of veterans, veteran artists and organizations, will develop a meaningful arts retreat. Currently the retreat committee consists of an Iraq War veteran, an Army Reserve officer, Red Wing Arts Association members and staff. The committee and participating veterans will complete an evaluation of the retreat.
The RWAA had 25 veterans apply and 23 attend the Veterans Art Retreat. The Veterans Gallery Show attracted more artists and visitors to the gallery that we had expected. 2: Reaction of Vet Organizations ranged from support to skepticism. By the close, with the installation of the Tribute sculpture, we had their support.
