Local veterans present their creative side at art show

SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (KSFY) - People gathered at the VA in Sioux Falls to view the Veterans Visual Arts Show.

The event marks the first step for veterans looking to compete in the National Veterans Creative Arts Festival in Buffalo, New York.

Although competition is open to all enrolled veterans, many participate to help cope and recover from post-traumatic stress, trauma, and other physical and emotional disabilities.

Employees at the VA displayed their arts and crafts at the event as well.
