The American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons seeks war injury related art

ROSEMONT, Ill., June 10 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The following was released today by the American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons:

WHAT: Wartime experiences not only affect the military personnel and their loved ones, but the physicians and medical teams who treat them. The American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons (AAOS) has opened a call for entries to a unique, juried art exhibition: Wounded in Action: An Art Exhibition of Orthopaedic Advancements, as a tribute to injured troops and families, civilians and the orthopaedic surgeons who are caring and have cared for them.

WHY: Wounded in Action celebrates those heroes (injured troops and civilians) who have had orthopaedic injuries as a result of serving our country in war. This exhibition also recognizes those orthopaedic surgeons who, throughout history, have risked their own safety to care for our troops, to save lives and limbs, to advance medical treatments, and to conduct research and learn from war in order to better serve those who sustain orthopaedic trauma.

WHO: This exhibit is open to artists in three categories:

  • Military personnel who have sustained orthopaedic/musculoskeletal injuries in any war or family members of any age (children included) who have been affected by those injuries.
  • Orthopaedic Surgeons who have provided medical care for wounded warriors throughout history, either in the military, in the Distinguished Visiting Scholars Program, in the course of their practice, or through orthopaedic research.
  • Injured civilians or artists of any age whose lives have been affected by war and have been touched in some way by the loss of extremity and/or other musculoskeletal injuries of war.

WHEN: Submissions now being accepted through October 15, 2009.

The exhibit is an extension of the Academy's 75th Anniversary Celebration.

To learn more about the Exhibition and its call for entries, please visit the Web site: http://www.woundedinactionart.org or contact Sandy Gordon, AAOS, Director, Public Relations, at (847) 384-4030 or gordon@aaos.org.
