Graffiti of War presents the Walls of War Tour – with a Reception on July 8, 11am-4pm.
The Graffiti of War Project strives to provide the world with a unique glimpse into the lives of those who experienced modern warfare through documenting and displaying the art they created. Each image represents a moment in time, when an emotion was captured in ink, paint, or pencil, an unconventional historical record of this millennium's first major conflict. Through sharing these images, we will begin a dialog between soldier and civilian, to bridge this ever-widening divide between those who have endured the misery of war and those who can only imagine the horrors.

Attend the opening reception of the 2017 Aperture Summer Open: On Freedom on July 13, 7pm. Curated by For Freedoms, this year’s exhibition offers a photographic response to Franklin D. Roosevelt’s Four Freedoms: freedom of speech, freedom of religion, freedom from want, and freedom from fear. The photographers and image-makers selected for inclusion each address these issues in their work in varying ways. By bringing them together, we aim to open up a dialogue about the nature and necessity of political action, the language and means by which we critique and produce avenues for sustainable change, and the relationship of photography to these issues. The event is free.
Featuring veteran/photographer Hector Rene.
