The National Veterans Creative Arts Festival, presented by the Department of Veterans Affairs and the American Legion Auxiliary, is the culmination of a yearlong, fine arts talent competition involving more than 3,000 participants nationwide. The festival is open to all veterans receiving care at VA medical facilities.
My 1st place art piece was the Soldier and the dog. I am very honored that the VA has chosen my piece. We will find out who took best in show at the Feb 15th closing ceremony. Thanks everyone for all of their support during the process. So excited about all of the next steps in the process.
