Join the Military Women's Memorial and Uniting US on Memorial Day to pay honor to those who have fallen and to kickoff the Summer of Healing with the Arts (SOHA). The summer is filled with three exhibits around themes starting with Honoring Past Service (May 20 - June 26, 2021), Freedom and Independence (June 27 - July 25, 2021) and Family and Wellness (July 26 - Aug 28, 2021). Special activity days are June 26th, July 24th, and Aug 28th, so please join us to celebrate the healing arts powers and recognize the experiences and talented artists.

After exhibiting at Walter Reed for several months, Experience and Impact paintings were delivered to their new home. The magic of the healing arts and the power of connection have united the artist and the new owners. The original artwork and prints are still available.
In November, Mark Carson joined the ranks of the Uniting US artists. As wood turners, Mark and AnnMarie immediately connected. Mark's bottle openers, pens, bottle stops, vegetable peelers, etc are proving to be highly popular! We are so happy that Mark joined US!
We are excited to announce Michael Green's artwork selection in the Arlington Public Library Quaranzine: Issue 8 publication. Michael Green's, "Sometimes You Need a Hug" - reflects a difficult time, there is civil unrest, and we are physically isolated from one another. Sometimes you just need a hug to get though, even if you are giving it to yourself. Visit the Uniting US Shop to purchase this or other veteran artwork. Check out Quaranzine: Issue 8 https://library.arlingtonva.us/2020/06/22/quaranzine-issue-8/
In our first installation with the Metropolitan Washington Airports Authority, Uniting US artist's David Horan and Leigh Cortez artwork brightens the Dulles International Airport (IAD) public area. Be sure to keep an eye out for more Uniting US artworks on exhibit in both IAD and Regan National Airport (DCA).
Your contributions will provide supplies and materials to veterans, military members, and their families to create innovative, narrative driven artwork. Artwork: US veteran artist Scott Hickey, concept sketch of completed bronze work.
