Exhibition: Operation Art

In conjunction with Operation Art – the Wiregrass Museum of Art’s class and studio program for veterans and active duty service members – WMA will host an exhibition from June 5 through September 28, 2019 featuring the original artwork of Operation Art students. In addition to original artwork, we are seeking photographs from our community to feature in the exhibition.

This open call is for veterans and active duty service members to share a photograph(s) taken during their time of service. Along with the photograph, it is asked that the artist provides a statement to coincide with the submitted work(s). This statement should include the location of the photograph, when it was taken, and what you remember from the time taking the photograph. Limit your statement to 500 words.
