EVAC: Experiencing Veterans & Artist Collaborations
Monday, November 23, 2020
On November 1st, The Pauly Friedman Art Gallery will be displaying a new exhibit titled,” EVAC: Experiencing Veterans & Artist Collaborations”. The exhibit will run through December 20, 2020.
Using storytelling and art, the EVAC Project bridges the gap between civilians and veterans by educating the public about life in the military. EVAC curators interview veterans from all five branches of the armed forces, who served from WWII through the post-9/11 period. Printmakers interpret the audio recording of a veterans’ personal military experience. The resulting prints are displayed with excerpts of the veterans’ transcribed audio, so that the viewers can relate the artistic interpretations to the veterans’ story. The process of storytelling and interpretation central to EVAC makes it a project uniquely positioned to promote empathy from multiple groups – the artist and viewer for the veteran’s experience, and the veteran for the artist’s realization of their stories.
