Art therapy helps troops process the pain of war

Local artist Curtis Bean is holding an art show atDSC_0769 local eco-friendly boutique Sol Shine today to help support “Art of War” – a project “dedicated to helping combat veterans through art therapy.” DSC_0774 DSC_0764 DSC_0773

Bean has been through Operation Iraqi Freedom I, II and III. Certainly the things he saw will haunt him throughout life. He suffers from PTSD. To visually see the damage, check out this photo gallery showing photos of soldiers before, during and after their combat tours. If eyes are the window to the soul, then theirs tell a very painful story.

Luckily, Bean and the Art of War project are trying to help. Come see for yourself, today, at the Sol Shine urban boutique at 29th and Umatilla in Denver from 12 – 5pm. Food and drinks will be provided and donations are gratefully accepted. The Art of War is also seeking volunteer art instructors and donated art supplies. Call Curtis Bean @ 315.681.1829 for more information or check out his artwork by clicking here.
