Dirty Canteen: Taking Place reflects on the politicization of survival. The Dirty Canteen is a collective of artists who served in the U.S. armed forces who state, “We do not accept the complicity of war advocates as the threshold for patriotism. We seek to comprehend, reflect, and educate ourselves and others about what exactly is 'taking place' in our country, our military, and the world. We are contributing to a necessary dialog that acknowledges the complexities of truth.”
The Edgewood College Gallery presentation of Dirty Canteen: Taking Place and related activities are the premier events in a collaborative partnership with In Good Company: An Exposition of Emerging Veteran Artists, a city-wide project created by Yvette Pino, Madison.
