This November, emerging military veteran artists will exhibit two- and three-dimensional visual art, theater and performance art, music and writing at 11 different locations throughout Madison.

According to a release, “In Good Company: An Exposition of Emerging Veteran Artists” will display works that reflect the veteran experience.

Both veteran and civilian curators are organizing the events as a way to ignite discourse. Art created by veterans is starting to become a larger genre, the release said.

The coordinator of “In Good Company,” Yvette M. Pino, founded the Veteran Print Project in 2010 to connect veterans and artists to spark conversations that would inspire prints based on the veterans’ experiences.

“Combined with a distinct point of view about conflict, the veteran art is a necessary discourse on societal themes, contentious topics, a call for introspection and a cohesive space for an elongated exchange of ideas,” Pino said. “This showcase of veteran art is a necessary means to amplify the veteran voice within the community to draw a better understanding of what that experience entails.”

She said the goal of the exhibit is to offer multiple artistic opportunities for veteran artists to engage with the community and continue fostering conversation through art.

A Wisconsin veteran artist will be featured at each venue. Venues include the Edgewood College Gallery, Arts Literature Laboratory, Overture Center for the Arts, Common Wealth Gallery, Madison Feed Kitchen, Gallery Marzen, the Graduate Hotel, Madison Central Library, Communication, the Barrymore Theater and the Wisconsin Veterans Museum.
