As this exhibit continues to travel through California, it found itself in San Francisco! I am so grateful to have had the opportunity to go and see this show in person, it was insanely powerful!

The first major exhibition to explore the powerful role craft has played as a channel for creativity, rehabilitation and transformation in the lives of veteran artists since World War II. Art and Other Tactics: Contemporary Craft by Artist Veterans will feature contributions of artist veterans and the pathways craft has taken through their visionary work. The exhibition will examine the way military service has impacted the outlook of artists over seven decades and led numerous veterans to pursue creative channels. The exhibition will explore how craft is a constructive antidote to the war experience.
