The exhibition also highlights works by veterans currently or previously enrolled in the Bihl Haus Forward, Arts! program: Grace Bermudez, Dan Gamez, Passka Prowell, Fermin Gutierrez, Kim Guidry, Helen Tiseth and Nancy Williams-Sykes. Many of these artists are being featured on the Bihl Haus Facebook page.
