Owens art exhibit tells veterans’ stories


PERRYSBURG — The public is invited to the opening reception to celebrate the work of the Experiencing Veterans and Artists Collaborations. The printed artwork tells stories from different war veterans.

The reception is Thursday from 5-7 p.m. at the Walter E. Terhune Art Gallery, 7270 Biniker Drive.

Experiencing Veterans and Artists Collaborations is an art project that brings together veterans and artists. EVAC curators interviewed veterans about their experiences, and artists made an edition of prints based on their interpretation of those stories. The prints are exhibited with excerpts from the transcribed interviews.

EVAC works to bridge the often-precarious gap between military and civilian life.

This exhibit is a part of Owens Community College’s 2022-2023 BIG Read Program, the goal of which is to bring awareness of different perspectives through books and accompanying activities on campus and in our surrounding communities.

The exhibit is open until Dec. 16.
