Travel Distance curated by Amber Zora

Travel Distance explores the military experience of service members and their families. The artworks featured represent how veterans and their families have processed, moved through, purged, and reclaimed their experience around military service.

Deployment and relocations can be and often are confusing times. Individual military members grapple with their daily tasks at hand while processing their distance from home and the future. For families who have undergone multiple deployments, there is a constant reshuffling of the household order. On the other side, everyone mourns the lost time and attempts to put the pieces back together. But the pieces often do not fit like they did before.

The exhibition also explores the multitudes of the veteran-identity. Veterans are parents, siblings, immigrants, Indigenous peoples, environmentalists and more. Even though service members and their families are widely depicted in the media from insurance commercials to sniper movies, the common media portrayal does not represent the uniqueness and differences within the veteran population.
