Davis Cemetery District in partnership with Yolo Arts will host “Positive Reflections” a group art exhibition featuring art in all mediums from service members from all branches of the military. Positive Reflections explores the veteran experience and celebrates the transition of our service people from combat to civilian life. The exhibition will run from March 2-March 28, 2016 at the onsite cemetery gallery, Gallery 1855. A special reception will include a thrilling performance by the Yolo Community Band, posting of the colors and poetry reading.
