Veterans’ Artwork Sought For Creative Arts Competition
The Sioux Falls VA Health Care System is seeking area veterans who want to share their creativity.
Vets are invited to be a part of the local Veterans Creative Arts Festival in March. The festival will showcase visual art, including woodworking, painting, leatherwork, needlework, paper crafts, sculpture and more.
Veterans who receive care from the Sioux Falls VA Medical Center or one of its five outpatient clinics are eligible to participate and may enter up to two pieces. The pieces must have been created within the last year and be submitted no later than March 1, 2017.
Entries will be available for the public’s viewing March 9, 2017 from 10:00 AM to 2:00 PM in the new Primary Care addition of the Sioux Falls VA Medical Center. Local judges will pick the winners. Veteran artists will also have the opportunity to enter the National Veterans Creative Arts competition in Buffalo, NY in October 2017.
For more information about submitting artwork, contact Shirley Redmond at 605-333-6889 or Diane Larsen at 605-336-3230, Ext. 9-6418.
