The Office of Public Art, in collaboration with Rethink Vets and The Heinz Endowments, relaunches the exhibition “Rethink Perception,” housed in a re-purposed shipping container reminiscent of those often utilized in overseas military deployments. The exhibition features the work of six artist-veterans: Alicia Dietz (Richmond, VA), Jonas Lara (Oxnard, CA), Jamie Peterson (Columbia, SC), Hector René (Brooklyn, NY), Ehren Tool (Berkeley, CA), and Elise Wells (Stahlstown, PA). Each artist is a member of the United States Veterans’ Artists Alliance (USVAA), an award-winning, multidisciplinary nonprofit organization that provides opportunities for veterans working across the humanities. Selected for their unique perspectives and strong artistic abilities, the artists and their works are intended to raise awareness about how veterans work, challenge veteran stereotypes, and celebrate the significant contributions of veterans to both military and civilian life.
