Earth & Steel – Ceramics and bladesmithing from the artist veterans of the IMPart program

Date

November 11, 2021 - December 5, 2021

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. Here at the League, our nationally recognized Ceramics Department Chair, Blair Meerfeld, works with volunteers and Fort Belvoir’s Warriors in Transition Unit B, to bring the arts experience to wounded veterans and their caregivers.

 

One day each week, these veterans are welcomed at our Madison Annex facility and offered individualized instruction and creative attention. The project also includes off-site multi-media courses, at the USO Warrior and Family Center on Fort Belvoir Military Base,  for in-treatment PTSD patients at the Ft. Belvoir Hospital.
