Abstract: With a focus on the visual, literary, performative and creative practices of veterans, the National Veterans Art Museum Triennial explores a century of war and survival while challenging the perception that war is something only those who have served in the military can comprehend. Throughout history, art has provided a frame to create meaning out of the complicated experience of war, seek justice and imagine reconciliation. The National Veterans Art Museum (NVAM) Triennial draws on this history to connect today’s veteran artists with the history of veteran creative practices and their impact on society over the past century. The NVAM Triennial exhibition opening coincides with the inaugural Veteran Art Summit, which features a series of presentations, workshops, panels and discussions, held at the Chicago Cultural Center, DePaul Art Museum and National Veterans Art Museum. This supplementary newspaper includes essays and descriptions of the Triennial exhibitions, the performance program, the literature component, an education guide and an overview of the Veteran Art Summit
