Artworks will be hosting “A Salute to Veterans” until November 11th at Artworks in downtown Big Rapids.  This exhibit features two sets of artwork: “The Hero Series” and “Wounded Warrior Dogs – A Poster Exhibit.” Below are descriptions of both.

Fashion Has Heart gives wounded vets the opportunity to express themselves creatively by transforming their thoughts into actual designs. This exhibit features t-shirts and footwear.
