National Art Contest
Vet to Vet Tennessee & Monroe Area Council for the Arts are pleased to present Operation Military Masterpiece, an art contest, a visual story that will honor America’s Veterans and the military branch they represent. Art can be used to convey a message of inspiration and creative thought. It essentially is a look from within providing a deeper understanding of the human condition.
VTVT and MACA invite artists to participate in this joint venture by responding to this competitive initiative and putting brush to their work. The contest elicits the artist, to use their vision on the storied history of the American Military by presenting respectful artwork for one (or more) of the six respective branches of service. The artist is asked to produce a work of art that expresses the valued traditions of each branch of service. A review of historical military art would offer a representative baseline for which the art may be properly inspired. We would love to see the humanity of the hearts of our men and women of service through you work.
This project is a national art contest open to anyone over 16 years old. There will be Six Categories. Six (6) Banner Designs one (1) for each Branch of Service: Army, Marine, Navy, Air Force, Coast Guard, and Space Force. Artist may enter all six categories.
