 FOOD FOR THOUGHT: VETERAN'S ARTWORK & THE TIES THAT BIND

WEDNESDAY NOVEMBER 9th, 6-8 pm

TEMPLE GALLERY

 

Warrior Writers and Temple University’s Tyler School of Art and Veteran Task Force will host a unique dinner party for veterans and people interested in veterans' issues. Temple Gallery will be showcasing a special exhibit of visual art created by Philadelphia veterans. The veterans' artwork will act as conversation starters for attendees. We invite you to discuss the importance of understanding veterans' issues and how they impact the entire Philadelphia community. This event will also be an opportunity to learn more about veteran services provided in Philadelphia and the upcoming Our City, Our Vets mural project.

 

Warrior Writers is a Philadelphia-based national nonprofit organization whose mission is to create a culture that articulates veterans' experiences, provide a creative community for artistic expression, and bear witness to the lived experiences of warriors.

 

Temple Gallery at the Tyler School of Art provides a visual context to inform and inspire public discussions of contemporary social concern.  These discussions are collaboratively developed to address issues of local purpose and international significance. 

 

The Office of Veteran Affairs at Temple University has convened a University Veterans Task Force to plan and implement programs that will provide educational and social events to help Temple veterans students succeed at the university.

 

The exhibition will be open from November 9-19. Gallery hours are Wednesday - Saturday 11-6p.
