VIV is working in a partnership with Northern Michigan for Veterans, Inc, (Non-Profit). A small group of combat veterans came together in February 2019, in Traverse City, with a mission to empower and support veterans.

We will create projects, arrange events, or simply help a veteran who needs a hand. We take no money, and 100% of what we do, say, and earn will go towards the veterans we serve. We are giving back to the community, by supporting those who have sacrificed so very much for our country.

We feel that we may be heading into the home stretch as far as getting a handle on the Covid virus. Planning for the next art show has to start so far in advance that we feel it is necessary to grab a little bit of optimism and run with it. We invite you to think back on our last art show and not only how much fun it was but what it enabled us to do for our veterans in northern Michigan. Here are some pictures to help you remember the incredible art as well as the tribute to our veterans. ... See MoreSee Less
