Millions of Veterans and their families struggle daily with both visible and invisible wounds of war. Art is a proven, positive force in the challenges of transitioning back to civilian life and overcoming combat and service-related illness and injuries. For our December 2020 Rally Point, we explore how art programs facilitate mental wellness, increase social connectedness, and become an outlet for creative expression. Our guests include Mary Whyte, world renowned watercolor artist and founder of the Patriot Art Foundation, and Heather Seymour, MSW, LISW, Veterans Arts Initiative founder at the Columbus VA.
About Rally Point:
Rally Point is a free, monthly event on the first Saturday of every month dedicated to connecting and educating Veterans, Veterans’ families, and those who wish to support Veterans. The programs focus on organizations and programs from which Veterans and their families directly benefit.
