Veterans Light Up the Arts is an annual event celebrating veteran, service member and military spouse artists and performers. Community members are invited to come see the healing power of the arts and enjoy an evening of entertainment. Tickets are available here.
Doors open at 6 p.m. with a Visual Art display and the program continues with performances from 7:00 to 9:00 p.m.
“Every year, Veterans Light Up the Arts has grown to exemplify and celebrate the important role art plays in the lives of veterans and military families,” said Saul Newton, Executive Director of the Wisconsin Veterans Chamber of Commerce. “New this year, we are excited to expand the programming to welcome artists from military families, allowing spouses of service members and veterans to display and share their work.”
All proceeds benefit the Wisconsin Veterans Chamber of Commerce, Feast of Crispian, Milwaukee Chamber Theater, Guitars for Vets, Lift for the 22, Warrior Songs and Ex Fabula.
