4th Annual Veterans Art Exhibition
Original Works by US Military Service Members from World War II to the present
The San Francisco Fleet Week Association (SFFWA) is proud to present our fourth annual Veterans Art Exhibition during Fleet Week 2016. Fleet Week is a time when we pay tribute to our women and men in uniform, and also focus on ways to improve the way we provide humanitarian assistance and educate ourselves about disaster preparedness.
San Francisco Fleet Week has earned the reputation of producing the largest Fleet Week in the United States. And as Fleet Week has grown, so has its mission. Since 2010, with the establishment of its Center for Humanitarian Assistance, Fleet Week has helped bring together leaders of Federal, State and Local government disaster response agencies, first responders, foreign dignitaries, non-governmental organizations and private sector companies with Department of Defense services to improve the nation’s ability to respond to catastrophic disasters. As a precursor to Fleet Week, more than 150 officials from federal, state and local governments and the military take part in an interactive exercise focused on military support in response to a catastrophic event.
The Art Exhibit at the Academy of Art University in the Cannery Galleries features original works by US Military Service members from World War II to the present. The San Francisco Fleet Week Association with the support of Academy of Art University presents this special exhibit for the month of October.
All of us with the SFFWA thank you for your support and participation in today’s exhibit.
