Wounded in Action

"This sketch shows a soldier, who has lost a leg, playing with his daughter as he waits for surgery" Pen and Ink and Watercolor by Ario Mashayekhi

In June 1st, I visited an art exhibition Wounded in Action: An Art Exhibition of Orthopedic Advancement where four pieces of art works by my friend Ario Mashyekhi were included. This exhibition will continue at Cultural Center in Chicago until August 31, 2011.

"All the artists in this exhibition have explored, both literally and figuratively, their feelings toward the loss of limbs and other musculoskeletal wounds- the majority of which are the result of war."
