Veterans and Washington's Coastal Scenery

Immerse yourself in artwork created by military veterans. Each piece includes interpretations of the local landscape, as well as written responses of its role in the lives of these past service members. This collection is a set of ten pieces, all containing imagery of Washington’s coastline – from Puget Sound to Port Hadlock.

This web exhibition was made possible with the support of ArtsWA’s new Wellness, Arts, and the Military (WAM) program. WAM supports veteran artists and celebrates their work, including artists seen here.
