Graffiti of War at Wolf Gang Gallery 

shortlist_graffiti_of_war.jpg

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. Their mission aims to begin a dialog between soldiers and civilians, to bring understanding and empathy to the experience of war through the lens of street art. The exhibit opens at Wolf Gang Gallery in Montgomery on Friday, February 17 at 5pm for public viewing continues through Sunday February 19.
