National Veterans Art Museum Free Admission Tuesday

Free Admission Tuesday from 12am to 4pm at National Veterans Art Museum - see INFO below. The genesis of the museum began with the Vietnam Veterans Art Group (VVAG) which was founded in 1979-1980 by a few artists and volunteers. At the time, traditional galleries and museums were unwilling to exhibit art about the Vietnam War that was considered controversial or sensitive. However, the VVAG convinced a small alternative gallery space to host a temporary exhibit. This first show, Vietnam: Reflexes and Reflections, which opened in October 12, 1981 received 150 visitors a day, well beyond its opening. The artwork was critically acclaimed, drawing thousands of visitors to the small gallery. With this popularity, the VVAG was invited to bring its collection to other cities as a traveling exhibition.
