To celebrate this milestone our my Veteran Community, along with Victoria Theatre Association and the Department of Veteran’s Affairs, have come together to present the Women’s Veterans Art Exhibit in the Orchestra Lobby of the Schuster Center. We hope that Dayton and its surrounding communities visit this exhibit will provide insight into the many experiences of our women veterans.”
