Frontline Arts is celebrating 10-years of the Frontline Paper veteran program with a traveling show of over 150 works of art. This exhibit represents a decade of artwork created by veteran artists and participants in mobile workshops across the country. The paper is made from military uniforms. The imagery represents experiences during the creators time in service. Many of these folks started the program without calling themselves an artist and created powerful works through these week long workshops.

On view April 1st – May 8th, 2022. The reception is scheduled for April 7th, 4:30 – 6:30pm. Ron Erikson, Program Manager and instructor of Frontline Workshops will be joining us for the reception and to give a talk about Frontline Arts Programing.
