The National Veterans Art Museum inspires greater understanding of the real impact of war with a focus on Vietnam and recent wars. The museum collects, preserves and exhibits art inspired by combat and created by veterans.
This year, the National Veterans Art Museum is hosting the first ever NVAM Triennial and Veteran Art Summit. From the Great War through the Global War on Terror veterans have made art about their military experiences that challenges stereotypes, politics, and media portrayals. At its best, such work has driven new creative movements and transformed society. With a focus on the visual, literary, performative and creative practices of veterans, the NVAM Triennial explores a century of war and survival while challenging the perception that war is something only those who have served in the military can comprehend. Throughout history art has provided a frame to create meaning out of the complicated experience of war, seek justice, and imagine reconciliation. The NVAM Triennial draws on this history to connect veteran artists today with the history of veteran creative practices and their impact on society over the past century.
