Call for Work: 2021 Survey Exhibition of Contemporary Art by Post-9/11 U.S. Military Veteran Artists

This Deadline Expired: Saturday, March 20, 2021

Opening in September 2021 at the National Veterans Art Museum, Chicago, IL, the 2021 Survey Exhibition will showcase artwork created by practicing Post-9/11 veteran artists with diverse prior military service experiences.

The theme for the exhibition is art and service, and how these two worlds conflate within the Post-9/11 veteran artist’s practice and work.

Submitting artists are challenged to translate the theme into visual representations. Artwork that exemplifies the diversity and multitude of perspectives within the veteran artist community and/or challenges the notion of the military as an art-less space, or one exclusive to art for therapy, will be given preference.

My works on paper employ painting and ink on paper- white, black and other colors. Expressionist lines and strong color symbols are intimate in execution whether large or small format.
