Veteran Art In Chicago

Veteran art bridges the gap between the perception and the reality of combat through the eyes of those who served. Located in Portage Park, the National Veterans Art Museum’s (NVAM) comprehensive permanent collection of combat inspired art comprises over 2,500 pieces—spanning over 30 years—and continues to grow. It includes painting, print, photography, and sculpture.Join us to discover and celebrate veteran art hidden in plain sight around the city of Chicago!
