National Veterans Art Museum Holds Grand Re-Opening For “The Things They Carried” Exhibit - chicagoist

Art is about stories, the ones the author carefully breathes life into on their canvasses and the stories we bring to it from our own lives and experiences. In the case of the 2500 piece collection at the National Veterans Art Museum, it’s about the stories of those who have survived war, with the goal of inspiring “greater understanding of the impact of war through the collection, preservation, and exhibition of art created by veterans of all U.S. military conflicts.”
