Event Description

This exhibit is an art project that brings together veterans and artists. EVAC curators interviewed veterans about their experiences, and artists made an edition of prints based on their interpretation of those stories. The prints are exhibited with excerpts from the transcribed interviews. In this exhibit, 12 to 15 pieces created from interviews with veterans through the Hayes Presidential Library & Museums Northwest Ohio Veterans Oral History Project will be featured in the museum rotunda. EVAC works to bridge the often-precarious gap between military and civilian life. Some of the pieces of art will eventually be displayed at the Pentagon in Washington, D.C. The exhibit will remain on display at the Hayes Presidential Library & Museums through Jan. 31, 2019. Admission is included with the price of a museum tickets. Hayes Presidential Library & Museums members are admitted for free. Sponsored by Beck Suppliers/Friendship Food Stores.
