Artists First for Veterans

Artists First for Veterans is a program specifically for current and former Armed Service members, particularly those suffering from Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, brain injury or for individuals who require a supportive outlet to process their unique experiences and personal stories.
Overseen by a social worker and a professional artist, the vets have full access to a studio stocked with art supplies so they can choose what they want to express and create. In addition to directly supporting veterans, Artists First for Veterans also has a community outreach component in the form of public art exhibitions. With each sold piece of art, the veteran will earn a financial commission.

State of the Arts is St. Louis’ only program devoted to the region’s vibrant arts community, taking audiences behind the scenes to meet the artists, writers, and performers who call St. Louis home.
