ArtOASIS Showcase

Friday, Nov 08, 2019 - 10:00 AM-Sunday, Jan 12, 2020 - 5:00 PM

See the work of more than 100 active duty armed forces members who engaged in a series of weekly art classes and visits to the Museum to produce original works of art as a means of coping with the effects of combat-related stress. The ArtOASIS program promotes healing by helping individuals find value and meaning through creativity. Military members are invited to take part in a series of art classes held at the Naval Base in Point Loma and at MCASD, where they produce original works of art as a means of coping with the effects of combat-related stress. This year the program expanded to serve residents at Veterans Village of San Diego (VVSD). Veterans enrolled in the residential treatment program at the VVSD participated in bimonthly guided tours and art-making workshops at the Museum. Their original works are included in this Showcase.
