ABOUTFACE: Special Reception and Artists’ Talk

Saturday, August 10 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm

FREE

Join us to celebrate five years of Contra Costa Veterans creating self-portraits. Hear Veterans tell their stories and talk about their work. Featuring Guitars for Vets performing!

ABOUTFACE brings together Veteran self-portraits from the Arts and Culture Commission of Contra Costa County’s ABOUTFACE program. Over 100 self-portraits are presented, for the first time bringing together the numerous ABOUTFACE works created over multiple years of the program. Collectively the pieces form a ‘unit’ that represents the varied stories of Veterans transitioning from military to civilian life.

The program is sponsored by Returning Vets of Diablo Valley, Concord Vet Center, Diablo Valley College, California Watercolor Association, Contra Costa Library & AC5.
