Through the Eyes of A Veteran Art Show at Hooper Law Office - May 23rd

My part of the Through the Eyes of a Veteran exhibit at Hooper Law Office. Each bridge symbolizes different transitions that can occur when transitioning from military to civilian life.  From my Journey series.

Through the Eyes of a Veteran was a very well put together event done by the Hooper Law Office in Appleton, WI.  Veterans were invited to submit their art or collections. As an Army Desert Storm veteran I was very honored to be a part of it.  Much of the exhibit was a memorial to the ones lost in battle, a beautiful and sobering tribute like the photos below.

The flags were created by Brandon Salfai who resides in Appleton

Other works depicted the emotions of combat and PTSD.

Other entries were more about the veteran who is also an artist but the pictures are not necessarily depicting war or combat themes.
