About

This Project: V + A (Veterans plus Art) was started because of a really good reason to us - connecting veterans to art. Everyone involved felt that it would be great to truthfully explain how we came about doing the project but the guys at Kickstarter decided that our explanation sounded like a "cause" which is not allowed according to the rules. So we will just stick to the fact that this is a sculpture art project that a group of veterans are putting together proudly.

The idea: Was to take a team of veterans and pair them up with NASA engineers and industrial designers to create art...  again, proudly. This is part of a TV show that was submitted and is still being evaluated by The Discovery Channel. Our project (a classified full size sculpture) is what we are funding and creating without cameras rather than wait for the show to be approved or rejected. That said, our Kickstarter objective is a sculpture made by veterans that will be revealed and completed if the project is funded. 

Funding will be used to purchase all of the supplies and tools needed to complete this project, the prizes and allow us to acquire a small work space to function as our Headquarters. Any excess funding will go towards our second project as we intend to repeat the process with a different group of veterans once we complete the sculpture.

Please take a look at our rewards. It is our hope that, like us, you will find this sculpture project by veterans worth funding or maybe you’ll just want to come on board and get involved in something that we think is important. Thank you America.
