Art After the Disaster
Visual art is a powerful form of expression, and this collection is made of the different ways visual art was used in response to the 3.11 disaster. It contains lost art that was recreated, art used for healing, art used to make statements, and art used to connect children across the country. In these articles, art has been used to reflect on the past and to look towards the future. While the location of origin for most of these is Japan, there is also a global reaction documented here.
