DEPICTING THE INVISIBLE: A PORTRAIT SERIES OF VETERANS SUFFERING FROM PTSD

Artist Susan J. Barron's deeply personal and hauntingly beautiful portraits of Veterans coping with PTSD was inspired after hearing 22 Veterans commit suicide daily in our country. Her series of large-scale, mixed media works on canvas and an award-winning documentary film short illustrate the Veterans' stories in their own words. Depicting The Invisible is presented with support from the Greater Columbus Arts Council and the Ohio Arts Council.

Latest Virtual Event

For our April Virtual Rally Point, we explore the role of the noncommissioned officers (NCOs), also known as “The Backbone of the Army” with Command Sgt. Maj. Mike Hall, U.S. Army (Retired). The core responsibilities NCOs in the U.S. military are to successfully accomplish the mission and maintain the welfare of their soldiers. They strive to remain technically and tactically proficient as well as provide outstanding leadership. The U.S. has the most highly educated and competent NCOs in the world, and they are the envy of other militaries.
