01/15/2019- An Arts Festival being held at the Iron Mountain VA will help veterans get in touch with their creative side. The Oscar G Johnson VA Medical Center is seeking entries in visual arts, creative writing, and performing arts from veterans for their Creative Arts Festival planned for March 8th. The contest is open to all vets who receive care at the VA and participants can use it as part of their therapy to heal from post-traumatic stress or other health concerns. There are more than 100 categories available and the first-place winners in each of those categories will have the chance to then attend the National Veterans Creative Arts Festival held this fall in Kalamazoo. The deadline to submit an entry is February 22nd and those interested should call contact the Oscar G Johnson VA for more information or to register.
