The Art of War
The steel sculpture in our small but moving art gallery was donated by Bill and Greg Frabotta. A Chicago-born Vietnam veteran who now lives in Oklahoma, Bill creates art to help heal the psychological and physical wounds of war. His work focuses on how something that comes from the earth and from God can cause both destruction and good. “Much of my work for the National Vietnam Veterans Art Museum has revolved around steel as a source of death and destruction, but with this sculpture I said to my brother, ‘Let’s look at the more positive side of what comes out of the ground. Let’s make an artifact that inspires prayer and makes us think of something besides war.’”
