As we approach the ten year anniversary of the terrorist attacks on our country, you may ask “What do interior design and 9/11 have in common?”
Well, for one thing, art.
“Art, in itself, is an attempt to bring order out of chaos.”
Art is very personal, whether one is the artist or the viewer. Artists throughout our country and the world were affected on that day. For many, the artistic outlet provides a form of healing, whatever the medium, and no matter the training or skill of the artist. Here are some websites that have some unique expressions.
And, of course, there is children’s art, sometimes more moving for its raw simplicity (all from“The Day Our World Changed: Children’s Art of 9/11”).
“Painting is just another way of keeping a diary.“
Inevitably, we went to war, and are still at war. But, how many of you know we have a military Art Program? If the quote above is true, then we have a wonderful visual diary from the Army.
Follow this link for a brief history of the program and to view the artist’s works. It also has a link to the National Constitution Center’s Art of the American Soldier Exhibition.
Here are a few of my favorites.
No matter what your political views, the end result is human lives have been changed forever by all wars.
In closing, please consider supporting the Wounded Warrior Project and/or Christmas Can Cure to show your appreciation for the sacrifices made by our military and their families.
