Veterans Day Celebration

Join the American Folk Art Museum in celebrating Veterans Day! From noon to 7 pm, we will offer guided tours of the War and Pieced exhibition, an afternoon film screening of the 1964 classic film Zulu (138 minutes), and hands-on activities for all ages. At 1 pm and 4 pm, art historian Jacqueline Atkins will discuss the relationship between quilts and propaganda, and at 5 pm, Warrior Writers—a community of military veterans, service members, artists, and allies who reflect on and express the veteran experience—will perform poetry readings. Refreshments and snacks will be served throughout the day.
