On April 12, 2017, the Military Health System launched the Pentagon Patriotic Art Program: Wounded Warrior Healing Arts Exhibit which featured 40 dynamic images of artwork created by individuals across the U.S. Army, U.S. Marine Corps, U.S. Navy, U.S. Air Force, and Walter Reed National Military Medical Center’s National Intrepid Center of Excellence. The year-long exhibit celebrated and honored the wounded, ill, and injured Service members and Veterans who have leveraged the power of healing arts to inspire their recovery, rehabilitation, reintegration or transition to civilian life.

The Wounded Warrior Healing Arts Exhibit sends a powerful message, conveying the importance of healing arts initiatives that are enabling healing, and highlighting the growing value of such programs across the Military Health System. Additionally, it encourages innovative collaborations and partnerships across military and civilian domains, empowering more Service members and Veterans to engage in meaningful healing arts opportunities.

The exhibit was sponsored by the Office of the Secretary of Defense (OSD), Washington Headquarters Services, Executive Services Directorate and managed by OSD Graphics and Presentations Division.

The below artworks include a sampling of the pieces displayed at the exhibit. For more information about the artworks included in the Wounded Warrior Healing Arts Exhibit, or the wide-ranging benefits of Healing Arts, email us at  warriorcare@osd.mil.
