War and art are two things that aren’t normally linked to each another. But for the veterans involved in the traveling exhibition “Graffiti of War,” it most powerfully is. “Graffiti of War” is a charity devoted to raising awareness and using art as a therapy for soldiers with post-traumatic stress disorder. Creating art has become a necessary use of the healing process to these military service members.
