Otis Celebration of Military Veterans in the Arts

Last night, Otis College of Art and Design and the Otis Veteran’s Association, in conjunction with Craft in America, presented an evening honoring America’s servicemen and women. 
 
Held on campus, the event began with a live demonstration sponsored by the Los Angeles-based Art Options Foundation as part of its Face to Face visual art project, which involves the sculpting of 100 life-sized busts of men and women veterans as an act of remembrance and historical record.
