Monthaven Arts and Cultural Center, in collaboration with CreatiVets, is proud to present, I Didn’t Know How to Tell You, American Veterans Art Show. This powerful exhibition showcases the art of American Combat Veterans who have turned to art, music, and creative writing to heal their unseen wounds of war and honors Veterans who have suffered from Traumatic Brain Injuries (TBI) and/or Post Traumatic Stress (PTS).
