From the Buffalo Soldiers National Museum:
For over 100 years African Americans have made contributions to the defense of the United States of America, for centuries African’s have made a lasting impression on the World of Art. There is no doubt that times of war had and still has a major influence on Art. What may not be known to the masses is that some of our men and women in the armed forces are also artist.
In an effort to pay homage to that bravery, heroism and artistry, MIA will create an atmosphere where veterans, active duty men and women can showcase their talents off the battlefield along with other modern and contemporary artist who may have been influenced by the military.
