Snapshots of the October Oceanside ArtWalk

Oceanside CA– It was a beautiful night for the third First Friday ArtWalk in Oceanside. Attendance was down a little according to people at host locations throughout the event. Jennelise Hafen with the Oceanside Public Library said over 100 people came to visit the Combat Arts exhibit in the first hour, or so of the event.
Combat Arts (www.combatartssd.org) is a local nonprofit organization that believes in the transformative power of the arts; practice in helping people, specifically military veterans, to process trauma in a positive way. By making, viewing and exhibiting art, veteran participants experience increases in self-confidence, community interaction, and self-expression, in addition to reductions in physical pain, stress, anxiety, and depression. Creating visual art makes it possible for veterans to communicate with pictures what is difficult to put into words. The library was host to the Combat Arts exhibit as part of the Cal Humanities and California Reads Grant titled ‘War Comes Home’.
