A temporary exhibition showcasing sculptures created by wounded, sick and injured service personnel and their families.

The Art of Recovery exhibition pieces were made by the participants of Bravo 22 Company, The Royal British Legion's 'Recovery and Wellbeing Through The Arts' programme in partnership with The Drive Project. Participants worked with sculptor Al Johnson to create life-size wire and mesh figures that communicate the experience of injury and its aftermath.

To complement the exhibition, the Museum will offer a variety of talks, events and activities, co-curated by clinical teams and current patients, reflecting on the subject of Post Traumatic Stress Disorder looking particularly at the triggers for these most challenging of experiences and the ways in which they have been explored and examined through art, therapy, literature and within specific historical contexts.
