“The exhibit, called “Reflections of Generosity: Toward Restoration and Peace” will show at Fort Bliss . . . throughout the month of April.
It will consist of Kelsey’s own original artwork, art from his friends at the International Arts Movement in New York City where he once interned, and art from his fellow soldiers and the El Paso community. Kelsey is seeking art from soldiers and El Pasoans through March 28 for inclusion.
“The goal is to use art as a healing tool,” said Kelsey, who is a personnel specialist with Headquarters and Headquarters Company, 16th Engineer Battalion, 1st Brigade Combat Team, 1st Armored Division.
Good work, Ron!
