Rick Bartow: Turning Agony into Art

The paintings and drawings of Vietnam veteran Rick Bartow are not easily forgotten. His images are graphic and intense, shaped from the material of grief and fear. Many are on display in New York at an exhibition for the Smithsonian's National Museum of the American Indian. NPR's Ketzel Levine reports on Bartow's work. View a gallery of his images.
