IMPart = Injured Military Personnel + Art

If you’ve read about The Art League’s IMPart outreach program before, you know that participants have had lots of success with clay. Did you know that we’ve also partnered with Resilience Forge to offer bladesmithing?

IMPart connects recent Injured Military Personnel with visual arts experiences created for personal enrichment, relaxed social engagement, the improvement and redevelopment of fine motor skills, and expressive catharsis. The program has been recognized by Michelle Obama and the National Endowment for the Arts. And now you can see what these artists make each week!

The IMPart Ceramics and Bladesmithing Exhibit is open to the public through Wednesday, November 30, 2016. That means you have one week left to see the amazing sculptures, vessels, and blades created in this unique partnership! You can find the exhibit in studio 8 of the Torpedo Factory Art Center (105 N. Union St, Alexandria, VA).
