The Veteran’s Arts Council (VAC) was founded by VFW Post 1 and is open to all military veterans. The VAC showcases and mentors artists working in any medium from all generations and service backgrounds. We also work with civilian artists as part of the VAC’s commitment to community outreach.
Through local community partnerships and the art gallery at VFW Post 1, the VAC encourages the artistic development of veterans by providing resources, workshops, mentorships, and more. The goal of the VAC is to both empower veterans to transform their experiences into media and contribute to the creative community; a community that enriches civic life for all citizens.
The VAC maintains the VFW Post 1 Art Gallery, one of the largest art galleries in the Denver Art District on Santa Fe, to highlight the work of veterans and invited civilian artists. In addition to works by local artists, the non-profit VFW Post 1 gallery includes art, sculpture and other media by nationally and regionally recognized artists.
