'From There to Here: Military Veterans' Experiences'
As part of its on-going dialogue with the military community, the Salmagundi Club on New York (SCNY) is proud to present “From There to Here: Military Veterans’ Experiences”, a veteran-curated exhibit of military veterans’ art and words, opening on Monday, February 10th, its Patrons’ Gallery at 47 Fifth Avenue in Greenwich Village. Partnering with Omar Columbus, a U.S. Air Force veteran, and NYC-based photographer, the exhibition intends to foster a better understanding and dialogue within and between the military and civilian communities. As an advocate and participant in veterans’ arts initiatives, he has brought together veteran art and experiences from the NYC-area and nationwide covering all branches of the U.S. Armed Forces across eras ranging from World War II through the present conflicts. SCNY’s President Elizabeth Spencer notes, “Many veterans and the family members want to tell their stories, but those conversations can be difficult to start. Often, art can be a starting place to communicate with others.” The exhibit is open to the public at no charge, February 10 through February 21, 2020. The gallery hours are Monday thru Friday 1 – 6 PM, and Saturday and Sunday 1 – 5 PM. Updates and any other information related to this exhibit will be posted on the SCNY website at http://www.salmagundi.org/content.cfm/salmagundi/from-here-to-there-military-veteransexperiences/ id/511
