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.

The National Veterans Memorial and Museum was created for a unique and specific purpose: to preserve, share and celebrate the personal experiences of our nation’s Veterans. Past and present. From all branches of service. And from all eras of conflict and peacetime service.

Their stories shaped a nation. Our freedom is their legacy. Share in the celebration, and be inspired by the courage of those who served.

We are more than a museum. We are the New Home of the Brave.
