“I am Not Invisible” – One Day Art Exhibit

Thursday, May 10th from 10:00am – 8:00pm

Join us for this one day only exhibit “I am Not Invisible” to learn more about some of the extraordinary women veterans of MN!  There will also be a special reception and showing of Soldier On: Life After Deployment in our Theater starting at 6:00pm

Nearly 29,000 women veterans call MN home. These women have served in every era of service and every branch of America’s Armed Forces, offering extraordinary service and sacrifice to defend America at home and abroad.  Unfortunately, they often fell overlooked when they come home. Their service and sacrifice often goes unrecognized, while our men in uniform are publicly honored and supported, our women veterans too often feel…. invisible.

Ars Bellum Foundation joined the MN VFW, Women Veterans Initiative, 23rd Veteran, and the MN Department of Veterans Affairs to produce a very special public awareness campaign.  The “I am Not Invisible” campaign celebrates the contributions of MN women to our Armed Forces.

The campaign features a portrait exhibit of 33 MN women veterans from all walks of life who have served our nation from WWII to Korea to Vietnam, through peace time and the current conflicts.  “I am Not Invisible” is an awareness campaign designed to honor that service and sacrifice; and give our communities an opportunity to show women veterans they are respected and supported.  That they are not invisible.

Free admission after 3:00pm.
