These artists have given their Grand Rapids audiences a reminder that we live in a nation currently involved in military action and with a history of military engagement around the globe.
… Other contributions call attention to the trauma experienced by soldiers and their families, including”The Walking Art Project” by Roger Carlson, at Spectrum Health Butterworth Hospital and Janice Haringsma’s “Color is the Universe” at GRCC Spectrum Theater Lobby.
