Pop Smoke: A Veteran Art Exhibition
August 13, 2022–January 15, 2023
“This exhibition explores veteran art making practices in ways that are playful, tongue in cheek and ironic. We consider that poignant artistic expression can take many different forms and artistic tones. We also examine the multitudes of the veteran artist identity: Who is a veteran artist? And what is veteran art?” –Curator Amber Zora
The exhibition's title is a military slang term referring to throwing smoke grenades as a means of cover or escape during battle. Pop smoke is also a slang term that means “to leave a place”.
This exhibition is developed in partnership with The Veterans Art Project (VETART) and made possible with support from the Mental Health Services Oversight and Accountability Commission (MHSOAC). Additional sponsorship support provided by Visit Oceanside.
Exhibition Celebration: October 29
