‘Trauma of War’ Mask Exhibit, Luncheon, and Speaker on Nov. 20

A photo exhibit titled “Unmasking the Trauma of War” will soon be on display at the Health Sciences and Human Services Library’s (HS/HSL) Weise Gallery featuring masks that were created by military service members participating in art therapy sessions at the National Intrepid Center of Excellence (NICoE) in Bethesda, Md.

The masks explore the themes of patriotism, duality of self, and the physical and psychological pain so often experienced by our military service members.

A luncheon to kick off the exhibit featuring guest speaker Melissa Walker, MA, ATR, an art therapist and the Healing Arts Program Coordinator at NICoE, will be held Nov. 20 from noon to 1 p.m. in the Gladhill Board Room on the fifth floor of the HS/HSL. Walker will discuss the masks and show several of them at the luncheon. For more information, click here.

To attend this event, please RSVP to events@hshsl.umaryland.edu. Seating is limited.
