Mark Pinto: Joes Come Home & 22 Joes Everyday
SAN JOSE, CALIFORNIA, UNITED STATES  •  Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Library  •  3 - 29 September 2014
 
Joes Come Home exhibit uses digital photo prints to inform society of the extended costs of war, focusing on Veteran reintegration issues like suicide, homelessness, post traumatic stress disorder and traumatic brain injury. In the library space adjacent, 22 Joes Every Day installation depicts the tragedy of 22 veteran suicides that occur each day. Each day of the exhibit, running the first week of September, viewers are invited to join in "hanging" 22 more toy soldiers, and the statistic will be made tangible. Artist Mark Pinto is a retired U.S. Marine Major, helicopter pilot, Gulf War veteran, and former Buddhist priest. He graduated in May 2014 from San Jose State University with a Masters in Fine Art and was at student veteran advocate from 2010-2014. He painted 22 Joes and Janes Every Day in Shannon Alley in San Francisco and has held fundraisers making $3,000 for SJSU veteran student artists to bring attention to veteran suicides. Along with his exhibit at the Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Library, Mark’s work is currently at the Pentagon and the National Veteran Art Museum in Chicago. This exhibit is a part of the California Reads War Comes Home series.
