Fleet Week Veterans Art Tug McGraw 2019.

For the third year in a row,  the Tug McGraw Foundation together with the The Veterans Home of Yountville Creative Art Center continues to be  an integral participant in San Francisco Fleet Week’s 7th Annual Veterans Art Exhibit, in showcasing artwork. These selected submissions, created by members of the Veterans Home of Yountville community, spotlight how art mediums are used to explore the healing process, whether figuratively, conceptually, literally or abstractly. In collaboration with the Tug McGraw Foundation, this artistic community response demonstrates our deep and dual capacity for corporal and emotional renewal, revealing how the restoration of our well-being is as much an everyday occurrence as it is an extraordinary one.

Yountville Community Response-the Art of Healing

The Veterans Home of Yountville, as an integral participant in San Francisco Fleet Week’s 6th Annual Veterans Art Exhibit, is showcasing artwork from a collection entitled “The Art of Healing.” These selected submissions, created by members of the Veterans Home of Yountville community, spotlight how art mediums are used to explore the healing process, whether figuratively, conceptually, literally or abstractly. In collaboration with the Tug McGraw Foundation, this artistic community response demonstrates our deep and dual capacity for corporal and emotional renewal, revealing how the restoration of our well-being is as much an everyday occurrence as it is an extraordinary one. Research shows that our body is remarkable at its ability to heal, but equally important is for our psyche to remain healthy as well. Considering the difficult challenges faced by the Veterans Home of Yountville this past year, with the fires and shootings, this exhibit presents a timely opportunity for continued healing and hope.
