Columbia, SC– As part of National Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) Awareness Month, Richland Library is proud to announce the arrival of a special photography exhibit, titled The Beauty and the Brokenness, in one of the gallery spaces at our Main location (1431 Assembly Street).
From Sunday, June 3 – Saturday, June 30, local residents have an inside look at the challenges of living with PTSD as well as its impact on relationships. Throughout the exhibit, veterans portray an emotional and enlightening journey with personal photos, accompanied by their own words.
The Big Red Barn Retreat, an organization that offers therapeutic services to service members, active veterans or retired veterans who are suffering from combat or military-related stress issues, is hosting the exhibit. It’s on display in collaboration with Jim Dukes, Director of Healing Art, and William Jennings Bryan Dorm VAMC Veterans.
