Operation: Art of Valor
Operation: Art of Valor is a community-based art program that provides opportunities for creative self-expression outside of clinical care. It began in 2018 as a partnership with the James A. Haley Veterans’ Hospital to offer glassblowing to military patients and veterans through structured, hands-on learning that focuses on improving cognition, teamwork, and confidence. Since 2018, the Morean Arts Center has expanded into photography and ceramics.
