A year after the Boston Marathon bombing, victims and witnesses of the violence have found healing through artistic expression. Two musicians and two visual artists channeled their talents into healing their own trauma as well as the collective recovery of their community. Expressing the deep grief of their community while trying to reach for hope has helped them move a little closer to feeling whole again.
