Charles J. Evered House – An Artist Residency for Veterans
About the “CJE House”
The Charles J. Evered House (CJE House) is a new program division of Hi-Desert Cultural Center whose mission is to provide a safe and secure artistic residency that facilitates the creativity of veterans and those who serve in conflict zones. Located in the renowned artistic communities of Joshua Tree National Park and established by former Lt., US Navy Reserve, and celebrated writer/director, Charles Evered, the CJE House is named in honor of his father, Charles J. Evered (1918-1979), who was a veteran of World War II, Army Air Corps.
The CJE House project has already brought together an impressive group of successful artists and supporters (Mentor Board) that have agreed to work with the residents in their chosen field — should they request such guidance. The Mentor Board has among its ranks best-selling authors, Emmy, Tony and other major award-winning working artists and arts related professionals that are willing to mentor and give of their time completely free of charge.
