Wounded Warrior art on display


WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) — The 2016 Wounded Warrior Art Exhibition is on display in downtown Wilmington.

The exhibit features art by wounded warriors from Camp Lejeune.

“The art of this community is poignant and powerful, and reflects the human need to channel emotions that most of us will thankfully never have to experience,” organizers said in a press release. “The exhibition represents a collective catharsis only made possible through the healing power of art and self-expression.”

Most of the art on display is available via silent auction through August 21, with proceeds being shared between the artists and the Museum of the Marine.

The exhibit will be open to the public from August 5 – 21 at the Hannah Block Historic USO & Community Arts Center.
