Monday's Vet Art Project Showcase an Overarching Success

Monday evening, Lisa Rosenthal and her Vet Art Project troops put on quite a show for us all at the Chicago Cultural Center. The performance and artwork showcase was the product of an inspired collaboration between area veterans and artists.

The performances (~20 separate mini plays, poetry recitals, musical compositions, readings, performance art/dance skits, and so much more) and art were moving, riveting, resounding, stirring, saddening, maddening, enveloping, uplifting, jarring caustic and crass, beautiful, bold and brash.

It was an honor to be there to witness, to listen, to consider, to shoulder and to do my part as a civilian to absorb some of the emotion of the shared stories of our nation's veterans.

A few of the evening's photos below the fold.
