-“Historically Memorials are commissioned after a war has ended. Sadly the conflict in Iraq continues. We chose to host a Memorial Competition while the war is in progress in order to view and share works of art that express the great upwelling of feelings and human emotion occasioned by this tragedy. The selection of work posted below is a sampling of the submissions that Art Cries Out received. Perhaps all of the work submitted -seen together- is a testimony to the depth, intensity and enormity of the outrage and anguish felt by so many. Art Cries Out is grateful to all who submitted.
Art Cries Out will continue to post submissions on the theme of war and subject of Iraq – if the war persists we will host another exhibition.”-
