Those on the front lines in the battle against the novel coronavirus find solidarity with New Mexico’s veteran artists. A New Mexico Arts’ community engagement initiative features the work of seven New Mexico veterans of the U.S. military in its new Essential(s) poster series. Each commissioned poster is printed with the statement: “From our veterans to our front line workers and their families: Thank you for your sacrifice, compassion, and resilience.” Each artist is a participant in New Mexico Arts’ Art in Public Places program, and the posters can be seen at public health offices, hospitals, fire departments, and grocery stores across the state. They are also being featured on the New Mexico Arts and the Military’s Facebook page (facebook.com/newmexicoarts). New Mexico Arts and the Military connects veterans and military families with arts-related resources to aid them with healing and reintegration.
