COPING THROUGH ART
The concept for the "Spirit of Survival" nation-wide sculpture project occurred during my second tour in Iraq. It seeks a creative and historic context for the consequences of conflict, and to be emotionally present with military burn survivors, amputees, and those who have PTSD. Finding fellow Veterans to pose and become a sculpture is the ongoing process.
