OPEN CALL- Military BRATS: Art About the Military Child Experience

March 7 @ 8:00 am - March 22 @ 5:00 pm

No one knows where the term “military brat” exactly originated, but some believe it was an early 1920s reference to the British army’s use of the acronym, “BRAT” as the status of “British Regiment Attached Traveler”, a term applied to families who would travel with the soldier. The WMAI invites all children of active duty or retired service members, veterans and reservists (ages 5+) to submit a single artwork. The exhibition features work representing military children, affectionately known as “military brats,” a badge of honor that describes life in a military family—multiple moves, new beginnings, stressors, deployments—an overall culturally unique …
