Art Speaks Lecture with Stacy Pearsall
Stacy Pearsall’s empowering presentation draws upon the hardships she faced as a photographer, and woman, in combat. She’s documented some of the most dangerous battles of our time, has been injured in combat and survived to tell her story. More importantly, she lives to tell others’ stories. Hers is an amazing visual journey of personal and photographic growth. Not only do the images relate the story of the soldiers she’s documented, but also her own tale of friendships she made and tragically lost. You’ll learn how her path to recovery paved the road to her new mission in life, the Veterans Portrait Project and Forging Forward.
