The UC Berkeley Department of Art Practice and Ehren Tool are pleased to present “BACK AZIMUTH”, featuring artists and allies connected to the veteran artist movement from across the country. This informal residency includes three events that are open to the public: an open studio, a portfolio show, and special exhibition at Worth Ryder Art Gallery .
Grounded in the rich history of veteran artists, with a nod to famed UC Berkeley ceramicist and veteran Peter Voulkos, this group of contemporary artists have conceived of and realized this informal residency program so that they can work together to create and exhibit artwork that challenges social norms and addresses misperceptions about veterans during a time of perpetual war.
