Recognizing November 1st as Veterans in the Arts and Humanities Day in the City of Los Angeles
Fellow veterans and artists and friends of USVAA.
You are cordially invited to join USVAA at a historically important and memorable event for all veterans, the citizens of Los Angeles and our members and friends across the country.
WHEN: 9:30 am on Friday, October 26th, 2012, Bill Rosendahl, LA City Councilman (U.S. Army veteran) and the Los Angeles City Council will officially recognize November 1st, 2012 as Veterans in the Arts and Humanities Day in the City of Los Angeles.
WHAT: The Los Angeles City Council resolution is a significant first step of USVAA's initiative toward making November 1st a day of national recognition for veterans past and present who have participated in the arts and humanities.
WHY: Why make November 1st National Veterans In the Arts and Humanities Day?
We want the general public to understand the number of significant contributions veterans have made to the arts and humanities and be aware of the talent level of those veterans now working in a variety of artistic fields such as fine art, theater, dance, film, television and multi-media/digital art.
Most importantly, this unprecedented recognition by the City of Los Angeles will assist USVAA as we continue to highlight the work of individual veterans developing careers both in the arts and the entertainment industry throughout the United States.
Toward that goal we have assembled a list of over 350 men and women veterans of all eras and conflicts who have distinguished themselves in the arts and humanities since the founding of the United States. The extensive list includes Edgar Allen Poe, Abraham Lincoln, Joseph Pulitzer, Julia Child, Kurt Vonnegut, James Earl Jones, Humphrey Bogart, Buster Keaton, Irving Berlin, Lou Rawls, H.C. Westermann, and our good friends and fellow veterans Tucker Smallwood, John DiFusco, Daniel Cano, Michael Rose, John Perrin Flynn and many other former service members now working or aspiring to work in the arts and humanities.
WHERE: Please join us at LA City Hall in the Council Chambers at 9:30 am, Friday, October 26th, 2012 as part of this important process. Friends and family members are welcome. Parking is free at LA City Hall. (Please call Keith Jeffreys at 310 559 2116 to coordinate for a parking pass at LA City Hall)
For questions about the event or the LA City Council Resolution, please contact Keith at 310 559 2116 or firstname.lastname@example.org
