The Department of Veterans Affairs Medical Center in Plains Twp. hosted a showcase Friday of the artistic talents of veterans residing at the Community Living Center. A ribbon-cutting ceremony was held for the new exhibit, entitled ‘Military Masterpieces.’ Veterans living in the Community Living Center create original artwork during the facility’s weekly art program, which recognizes the progress and recovery made via art therapy through self-expression.
