DEPICTING THE INVISIBLE

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 by CAS with support from the Greater Columbus Arts Council and the Ohio Arts Council.

SSG JOSH SANDOR'S INSPIRING STORY OF SERVICE

Staff Sergeant Josh Sandor, U.S. Army (Retired), shares his story of answering our nation's call to service after the 9/11 attacks. While in Iraq in 2007, Sandor's convoy was hit by an IED that changed his life forever. His new mission is maintaining a balance between his family life and living with PTSD, while selflessly helping others escape the shadows.
