WHAT: “Acrylic Warfare: Built to Survive”, showcasing a variety of Veteran artists. The crew will travel to 10 cities where Christian will talk about veteran suicide and alternative forms of therapy. This art show is meant inspire and educate the veteran community. Throughout our travels, we will be making a documentary so we can reach more veterans for years to come.
WHERE: Brassworks Gallery | Portland, OR
This show was standing room only and featured a total of 18 artists who are Veterans or related to Veterans. What crazy fun opening night. We had standing room only, not even any room for our traditional food table. 2 TV stations came out to do interviews, speeches were given, some tears were shed and it was an amazing night where the community really came out to show their support. We will be doing our show closing in Vegas in April, where we will do a call out to all local NV Artists. The final journey of the documentary will be filmed and will be used for online help for Veterans with PTSD. Watch for more details and enjoy these images and video’s from the show!!
