Veterans Coming Home: Healing Arts

 

 

This 30-minute WFYI documentary tells the inspiring stories of local veterans who are using art to help transform their war experiences into hope and healing. Josh Bleill lost both of his legs in Fallujah, but finds great peace in his art therapy experience of dancing. Andrew Schnieders’ drawings helped him better understand his feelings. In this special, you will also meet a scientist who is exploring the science behind art therapy. And you’ll see how veterans are transforming their uniforms into art paper.

This project is in partnership with Herron School of Art and Design and the Kurt Vonnegut Memorial Library.
