Description: “A Heads-Up Dream for Peace” was created in response to the horrific 22 daily veteran suicides that occur across the nation. We decided to employ a text based art approach to this sensitive subject matter because seeing a disenfranchised person in public, particularly within the close confines of a subway, usually solicits a universal response of disgust or downright revulsion, yet within a person’s outward shell often houses a personal history worthy of respect and empathy.
