In New York, a Veteran Arts Showcase will be on display this weekend at the Franklin D. Roosevelt Presidential Library and Museum in Dutchess County.

The tri-county Veteran Arts Showcase features works by local artists, photographers, and authors with military backgrounds. The showcase is the result of a collaborative effort between The Daniel Center, The Orange County Arts Council’s Creative Warriors program, and The Veteran Family Support Alliance, which together serve communities in Dutchess, Orange, and Ulster Counties. In addition to a display of paintings, photography and sculpture, there will be readings and an illustrated presentation of how art helps heal post-traumatic stress disorder and brain injury. There is a reception Friday evening, and exhibits, presentations, and performances Saturday and Sunday, at the Franklin D. Roosevelt Presidential Library and Museum in Hyde Park.
