Welcome Home – opening NOV 11th
National Veteran Art Museum, Chicago IL, 4041 N Milwaukee
The passing of trauma from one generation to another leaves physical and psychological scars on survivors that has ramifications for decades.
Welcome Home is the customary message given to soldiers returning from war. After this initial greeting, familiarity dissolves and the traumas of war surface. Veterans set out to relearn the world they left behind and their family meets a transformed person.
In this joint exhibition, Dr. Charles Smith, a Vietnam veteran, and Ash Kyrie, an Iraq veteran, begin a dialog that explores the disconnect between civilians and the war being conducted in their name, and reveal their shared relationship to the perpetuation of trauma across generations.
Welcome Home is a part of IN WAR, a series of events, art shows, and performances that explores the continued rupturing of trauma in everyday America.
Please join us on Veterans Day, November 11, 2012 to celebrate the opening of our new location at 4041 N. Milwaukee Avenue, Chicago, Illinois and the unveiling of Welcome Home. The NVAM will be free and open to the public from 1 p.m. – 5 p.m. and will offer light refreshments, artist talks, and the opening of a brand new show.

We aim to compare works of art made by the Vietnam Veteran Dr. Charles Smith and myself Ash Kyrie. How do these works relate? What are the themes continuing from the war in Vietnam to the wars of today?
