Aftermath: War is Only Half the Story tells the incredibly moving stories of the people left behind after the cameras have moved on from a war zone.

Joseph Beuys was an influential German artist known for his performances, sculptures, environments, vitrines, prints, posters, and thousands of drawings. Beuys highlighted the need for greater environmental awareness across the globe through his ongoing social sculpture project entitled, 7000 Oaks. With the help of over 20 organizations, 7000 Oaks inspired the planting of over 350 trees and several stones by over 500 people in Baltimore Parks and at the UMBC sculpture site in 2000.
