The Veteran Artist Program and Wild Turkey Bourbon present The Home Show, an all-veteran
arts showcase, November 12th at 7:30PM at the David Rubenstein Atrium at Lincoln Center. The
evening is part of the Lincoln Center Veterans Initiative.
The Home Show will feature readings, screenings and performances by an all-star line-up of
professional, military veteran artists in music, theater, film, dance, poetry and prose.
Wild Turkey Bourbon will be releasing its new military label, featuring artwork commissioned from
Air Force veteran Shawn Ganther. Ganther's artwork will be on display and we will be pouring drinks
featuring a variety of Wild Turkey bourbons.
The event will feature readings from LP/OP by TJ Brady (Army Wives, Narcos) and The Magical
Kingdom by Maurice Decaul (Holdin’ It Down with MacArthur Fellow Vijay Iyer), performed by
professional veteran actors alongside some of New York’s hottest young talent. Further acts include
an excerpt from the Shakespeare-infused one-man show Cry Havoc! by Stephan Wolfert (member of the critically acclaimed theater company BEDLAM and military sequence director for Movin Out on
Broadway), readings from new novels by The New York Times published authors Elliot Ackerman
(Green on Blue), Brandon Caro (Old Silk Road) and Roy Scranton (Learning to Die in the
Anthropocene), dance performance created by 2015 New York State Veterans Hall of Fame Inductee
Roman Baca, and a screening of excerpts from the new comedy series Vetted written and directed
by Paul D. Mooney. The evening will be hosted by James P. Connolly (Comedy Central, HBO, XM
Radio, VH1) with an all-veteran house rock band led by Emmy Award-winning commercial producer
Tom Mooney, who headlined at legendary NYC venues including CBGB’s, The Ritz, and The Bottom
Line, and opened for Blondie as the lead singer for The NYC August Rock Band.
Additional talent includes cinematographer Zachary Halberd (BBC Wales, Doctor Who), actress
Sandra Lee (Deployed at Studio 54, Comfort Women Off-Broadway), Everett Cox, Jenny Pacanowski,
and more to be announced.
The Veteran Artist Program works to change the American perception of the military as not just a
warrior community but also a creative community. Based out of New York City, VAP has given voice
to over 1000 veteran artists in 52 productions across America. VAP has organized more than 30
community improvement projects, including painting two murals in Baltimore and one in the Bronx.
Most recently, VAP installed the first ever all veteran art exhibit at the Pentagon, showcasing 50
veterans from over 400 submissions. VAP is part of the Got Your Six initiative alongside 30
organizations offering services to veterans across America. VAP’s work has been seen on CNN, Fox
News, ABC, BBC, MSNBC and covered by NPR, Baltimore Sun, The Washington Post, The New
York Times, The Christian Science Monitor and The Wall Street Journal.
