Call for Submissions
A local gallery is calling for Veterans and Active Duty Military to submit their original pieces of artwork to hang in the community gallery space at the Waddell & Reed Community Gallery.  Sponsored by the Southern Arizona Arts and Cultural Alliance in support of the Creative Arts Therapy program initiative, and in solidarity with Veterans in the Arts, we seek local Veterans and Active Duty Military to participate in the exhibition.
Exhibition Information
The Southern Arizona Arts and Cultural Alliance invites all self-identifying veterans to submit art to the upcoming exhibition at the Waddell and Reed Community Gallery. The show will feature works representing personal identities or artistic perspectives of each veteran expressed through their artworks and art pursuits in whatever form that takes. SAACA would like to challenge general assumptions about what a veteran is by opening up the conversation about who each person is, or what interests them within and beyond that title. The purpose of the show is to create a space for expression and reflection for veterans while sharing and engaging with the  larger community.
