VA Central Iowa Health Care System is proud to announce that we will be cohosting the National Veterans Creative Arts Festival in 2018 with the American Legion Auxiliary!  From October 29th to November 5th, 2018, Des Moines will host over 130 national art winners and their care teams.  These Veterans were selected from over 3,000 participants who participated in their local competitions.  The festival culminates in an inspiring art exhibit, writing presentation, and live stage show open to the community! 

We need your help to make this successful!  We will need donations, greeters, help with registration, promotion of the event, assistance with workshops, and so much more!  Please contact Suzanne Anderson, Music Therapist at 515-699-5999 ext 4949 or at Suzanne.anderson4@va.gov.
