Connecting veterans with their benefits has been a cornerstone of the VFW's mission for more than a century

Wounded Warrior Project® (WWP) renewed its support of The Veterans of Foreign Wars (VFW), an organization that fosters camaraderie among United States veterans of overseas conflicts, assists with securing benefits, empowers veterans to have a smoother transition to civilian life, and advocates on behalf of all veterans.

WWP’s $410,000 grant to VFW helps connect post-9/11 warriors to benefits counselors at 23 Benefits Delivery at Discharge (BDD) sites across the country.

“The transition from the military to civilian life can be challenging, but thankfully The Veterans of Foreign Wars have been there to help our nation’s veterans since 1899,” said WWP CEO Lt. Gen. (Ret.) Mike Linnington. “Wounded Warrior Project is proud to partner with the VFW. Their benefits counselors augment our own efforts to help service members navigate the VA’s claims process and access the healthcare benefits they have earned through their service. In 2018, our grant helped VFW service officers in their efforts to file 14,904 claims and secure more than $155 million in benefits for veterans.”

“Connecting veterans with their benefits has been a cornerstone of the VFW’s mission for more than a century, and our work with Wounded Warrior Project allows us to build on…

Special Two-Night Event on October 19 & 23 Showcases the Film Marking Springsteen's Directorial Debut and Featuring His Performance of the 'Western Stars' Album in its Entirety - Backed by a 30-Piece Orchestra

On the heels of the successful world premiere of Bruce Springsteen’s “Western Stars” at the Toronto International Film Festival, Fathom Events announces that it will bring music legend Bruce Springsteen to cinemas across America in an exclusive two-night theatrical release of “Western Stars.” The Fathom screenings, which will be held on October 19 and 23, will also feature an exclusive look behind the scenes with Springsteen, including never-before-seen archival footage and previously unreleased music from the Springsteen vault.

“Western Stars,” the cinematic film version of his latest globally successful album, was directed by Thom Zimny, his longtime collaborator, and Springsteen, marking his directorial debut. Following the Fathom events, “Western Stars” is slated for release on October 25, 2019.

Tickets for “Western Stars” are available at FathomEvents.com and participating in theater box offices.

From Fathom Events and Warner Bros., this special two-day event will premiere in cinemas nationwide on Saturday, October 19 at 7:00 p.m. and Wednesday, October 23 at 4:00 p.m. and 7:00 p.m. (all local times). For a complete list of theater locations, visit the Fathom Events website (theaters and participants are subject to change).

“Western Stars” offers Springsteen fans across the country a unique opportunity to see him perform all 13 songs from the critically lauded album—his first studio album in five years. Touching on themes of love and loss, loneliness and family and the inexorable passage of time, the documentary film evokes the American West—both the mythic and the hardscrabble—weaving archival footage and Springsteen’s personal narration with a song to tell the story of Western Stars.

In a first for Springsteen, his rendition of the album is backed up by a 30-piece…

Richard Marquis 'Pastel Polar Bear' 2013
Exhibition open September 28, 2019, through October 2020

On September 28, 2019, the Museum of Glass will open Richard Marquis: Keepers, a late-career survey of this towering figure in the Studio Glass movement. Organized by Museum of Glass in partnership with the Wichita Art Museum and guest curated by Seattle-based curator Vicki Halper, this retrospective of Richard (Dick) Marquis’s work includes objects that have rarely been exhibited, such as ceramics and prints.

Known for his obsessive technique, deep respect for history, and irreverent use of his skills, such as mixing knickknacks with highly crafted objects, Marquis is celebrated as one of the most influential artists of the Studio Glass movement.

“It’s one thing to be incredibly skilled and have an eye for details, but it’s what Dick does with the work after it comes off the pipe that brings humor and context to it,” said Benjamin Cobb, Hot Shop Director at Museum of Glass. “His ability to create work that pulls the viewer away from the overwhelming mastery of technique is something I’ve always found astounding.”

Drawing on his background in both ceramics and glass, Marquis adopted a derisive attitude towards these mediums that was tempered by technical skill and an established vocabulary of forms—the cup and teapot among them. Marquis has been a lifelong collector of mostly odd objects. Among them are bowling balls, tin coffeepots, anvils, bunches of glass grapes, and ceramic dogs. He…
