Larry Thompson Presidents Rug
Since September 11, 2001, The United States has been involved in two wars. 2.5 million American soldiers have or are serving in these wars, yet a large portion of our society is unaware of the effects war has had on these service members and their families. Space One Eleven will exhibit an installation of artworks by artist Larry Thompson titled, The Infanttree Project, which is his response to America’s insulation from the carnages of war. As an artist, Associate Dean and Professor at the private liberal arts institution,            Presidents’ Rug, Larry Thompson,                    Samford University, Thompson has long                 wood, spray paint, 15,000 toy soldiers                encountered students who are disconnected                                                                                            from our current wars. This disconnect is not                                                                                            contained to university students, but extends                                                                                          to the rest of the country and may be                                                                                                          attributed to the lack of coverage by news                                                                                                media. In the news today, more attention is                                                                                              often given to who was voted off a reality                                                                                                  television show than to the humans that died                                                                                          on a given day as a result of war.
