Other veteran events sponsored in part by the National Ability Center

Submitted by the National Ability Center

In addition to the annual "Saluting Our Heroes" luncheon, the National Ability Center has partnered with other organizations to raise awareness of the military through various exhibits.

Here is a list.

‘Soldier Boy, Soldier Girl’ photo exhibit at the Kimball Art Center, 638 Park Ave.

The photography of Lynn Blodgett is on display in the Kimball Art Center’s Garage Gallery and will run through Dec. 1. The exhibit consists of portraits featuring a male and female soldier dressed in the military wear from each war that has involved the United States. Although style and appearance of the uniforms change, the constant is the models, symbolizing the human element of warfare and the bravery, valor and sacrifice of every soldier. A Veterans artist reception will be held at the Kimball Art Center, on Friday, Nov. 15, from 6 p.m. until 8 p.m.

Veteran Artists exhibit at the Kimball Art Center, 638 Park Ave.

This open-submission art exhibit, which will be on display at the Kimball Art Center’s Badami Gallery through Nov. 19, features mixed-media art created by veterans and U.S. service members. Proceeds from for-sale items will go to the National Ability Center.

Field of Flags at Miners Hospital, 1354 Park Ave.

The National Ability Center will team with Colonial Flag, a local business in Sandy, for Field of Flags, a project that will feature more than 300 donated American flags that will be on display near Miners Hospital. The exhibit is planned to be up from Nov. 9 through Nov. 16. Supporters will have an opportunity to "sponsor a flag" in honor or memory of a veteran or service member. For more information, call the National Ability Center at (435) 649-3991.
