Sept. 9, 2019

An event showcasing works of art by area veterans will raise funds for a Veterans Inspiring Veterans, a local nonprofit.
 
The Veterans Inspirational Art Show will be held at the home of Casey and Dana Cowell on West Grand Traverse Bay on Sept. 28, and will feature more than 100 pieces of art, including paintings, sculpture, pottery and more created by 35 arts, all for sale for between $100 and $19,000.
 
Prizes will be awarded on behalf of an independent curator, with one winner selected by the evening’s guests.
 
The event will be catered by Chef Jim Morse of The Boathouse.
 
Veterans Inspiring Veterans was formed by a small group of combat veterans in February in Traverse City. The group says it “takes no money, and 100 percent of what we do, say, and earn will go towards the veterans we serve.” The organization is affiliated with Northern Michigan for Veterans, another area nonprofit.
 
Tickets to the event are $100 and are available for purchase here.
