NYC DVS Artist in Residence Open House

Celebrate the work of the first Department of Veterans Services Public Artists in Residence (PAIR) on September 29, 6pm. This program represents a dynamic new partnership between the NYC Department of Veterans' Services (DVS) and the Department of Cultural Affairs (DCLA). The artists, Christine Tinsley and Jules Rochielle, will present on their 8-month long embedded artist residency where they worked to create and engage a community of female veterans. The creative team will offer insights into their work with veterans as well as their experience as the first Public Artists in Residence.

Christine Tinsley's portraits of female veterans will be on view, and she will discuss her contemplative practice of transforming used military uniforms into handmade paper. Jules Rochielle will share an interactive map that offers insight into their creative process for community outreach, events, and community art workshops.

RSVP for the Open House here.
