On behalf of Mil-Tree, Arts Connection would like to invite you to join us for the ribbon cutting and opening celebration of “Sanctuary,” a public arts project, which will be dedicated to the Joshua Tree community on Wednesday, May 17th, from 6pm-8pm at 2601 SunFair Road in Joshua Tree, California. The project brought together veterans, active-duty military, their families and other community members to create an earth-bag structure that can be used to host meetings, celebrations, readings, meditation, lectures and more. It is our gift to the community—come help us animate this new public space!
As background, Mil-Tree is a non-profit organization with the mission of bringing together veterans, active-duty military, and civilians in order to help each other to address the wounds of the soul through communication and art. “Sanctuary” was sponsored by the California Arts Council’s Veterans Initiative in the Arts and many other local partners including: The Joshua Tree Music Festival, Copper Mountain College, Arts Connection and the Joshua Tree RV and Campground, which hosts the project at their site.
Come see the impact Mil-Tree has on the community, help us recognize our partners who helped make “Sanctuary” possible, and most of all-- celebrate our veterans, active-duty and military families!
