The Maine Veterans' Art Exhibition Celebration

The Maine Arts Commission honored and celebrated Veteran artists at the State Capitol Complex in Augusta on November 1, 2022.

 In 2015, the Maine Legislature passed a provision declaring November 1 as Veterans in the Arts and Humanities Day. To honor this day, the Maine Arts Commission partnered with the Maine Bureau of Veterans’ Services, The Peace Gallery, and Quilts of Valor. 

 The event featured speeches by leaders in the arts and veterans’ services, the unveiling of the State of Maine Honorable Service plaque, and a custom-made Quilt of Valor presented to each veteran artist participating in the exhibition. 

 After the ceremony, there was a walking tour through the exhibits at the Burton M. Cross Building and the Maine Arts Commission. Thirty-six pieces of art from 20 Veteran artists were be on display

 The Maine Veteran’s Art Exhibition are open to the public as a self-guided tour, Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. through December 30, 2022.
