1617-PP Arts in Service


USUO's 2016-17 cultural festival shines a spolight on veterans and active military, focusing on ways our arts community can appreciate and support
them. As part of this festival, many local arts organizations will present events on military themes and will also provide access for active and separated military personnel to a variety of arts performances. We will also draw attention to veterans’ active art-making as a means of self-expression.

Festival Highlights Include:

  • The Western US Premiere of The Long Walk by Utah Opera
  • Guest writer events with Brian Castner, author of the memoir The Long Walk
  • Performances and events based on military experiences, produced by Salt Lake Acting Company, Art Access, Ballet West, U of U Creative Writing, and more
  • Annual Veterans Creative Arts Festival at the VA SLC Medical Center
  • Free/discounted tickets to performances and other events
  • for veterans and current military
