The road that led artist Jeffrey Stenbom to glass passed through the sacrifices of war. In this BECon 2017 presentation, Stenbom outlines his story as a combat soldier and veteran. He then explores how past traumas and PTSD shape his intensely personal work—and how that work has become a force of hope and healing for other veterans and their families.
