Chicago in War: November 2010
The distance is great.
The disconnect is great.
The impact is deep.
A project of The National Veterans Art Museum
Chicago in War is a series of events, art shows, and performances that explores the continued rupturing of the traumas of war in everyday America.
The occupations of Iraq and Afghanistan have and will continue to leave deep scars in our hearts and minds; and for some of us these scars are emblazoned on our physical bodies and memories. Too often these occupations are swept from our conscience, into the alleys of our streets, into the corners of our city and our collective minds. If they are ever to come to end, their myriad effects must be recognized, unearthed, uncovered, demystified , and exposed!
