In celebration of Veterans Day, the Museum of Craft and Design is honored to provide free admission for everyone on Wednesday, November 11th from 11am-6pm.
Experience The museum’s current exhibition Art and Other Tactics, which explores the role that craft has played in the lives of military veterans since World War II. Discover contemporary artworks that reflect on the personal and political outcomes of war and military service, and the stories behind the works and the artists themselves.
Free Veterans Day programs include a noon exhibition tour with Curatorial Assistant Ariel Zaccheo of “Art and Other Tactics: Contemporary Craft by Artist Veterans,” followed by a demonstration with a service dog from Operation Freedom Paws, a charity that empowers veterans by matching them with rescued dogs, then training them together to become certified service dog teams.
