Screening and War Wounds with Trinh Mai at OMA

Setting up the system prior to screening

This week, our first artist documentary, Honoring Life: The Work of Trinh Mai, was screened at the Oceanside Museum of Art, just a few feet away from Trinh Mai’s current exhibition, a solo show called Lifeline. According to the artist, “Lifeline provides an intimate glimpse into the interconnectedness that bears witness to both life’s fragility and the weight that it tethers to our core.  These shared, lived, and inherited stories have been woven into this delicate collection of work, rewritten as a prayer for light upon the weary and heavy-laden.”

Artists and Veterans Create “A Time to Heal” at OMA

Trinh Mai and J. Grant Brittain  joined creative forces for A Time to Heal, a “socially engaging project whose mission was to provide war veterans with a space for reflection through art” on exhibit at the Oceanside Museum of Artthrough October 8.

The subject matter was close to Trinh’s heart, as the majority of this artist’s work draws on personal memories, family roots, and spiritual connections.” As a Vietnamese American whose family suffered the tragedies of the Vietnam War, Trinh felt a personal connection to a project centered on healing. The first half of A Time to Healcomprised a week-long workshop Trinh facilitated, with Armed Forces veterans Rachel Davis, Michelle Vesely, John Wayne, and Christopher Weathers, during which they created mixed media “war wounds,” incorporating letters the participants wrote to themselves on hardship and healing.
