I first discovered the Veterans Art Center when I took my wife there for a pen & ink art class. It has been great getting to know other Veterans and their families, and working on different projects together. The Veterans Art Center is a great resource for the community. And it has been wonderful to see how much our community appreciates their Veterans! The Veterans Art Center has a storefront where you can purchase some of the amazing art done by Veterans, a monthly changing gallery that showcases different art done by Veterans and their families, a class area and open studio area, a full wood shop, music room, and so much more! You owe it to yourself to stop in and bring your family and friends! Everyone should come in and see what they have going on! And anyone visiting Grand Junction - this should be on your must see list!

I have personally watched the growth and healing of many of the Veterans and family members who have walked in the door. The successes are many.
