Fort Meade Veterans’ Affairs hosts Creative Arts Show

RAPID CITY, S.D. – The Veteran’s Affairs Department at Fort Meade held its 2019 Veterans’ Creative Arts Show on Wednesday. All of the artwork displayed at the show was created by veterans.  

The competition included 51 different categories. Among those were acrylic and watercolor painting, sculpting, photography and more.

“A lot of the artists here are veterans who have physical or psychological problems and the art helps to relieve a lot of there stresses and the problems that they may have,” said artist and veteran Dennis Linn.

Attendees voted on which pieces they liked and the winners will move on to an art festival in October.
