Jeffrey Stenbom's MFA exhibit in Top 10 best shows in 2015

Jeffrey Stenbom's MFA exhibition, "Thank You," was selected by Doug MacCash as one of the Top 10 New Orleans Art Exhibitions in 2015. MacCash interviewed Stenbom in March and recorded a video of the exhibition in the Carroll Gallery. Stenbom's thesis exhibit included  installations of cast glass military boots, bootprints and monumental glass dog tags. MacCash wrote, "Stenbom, who was a combat soldier during the Iraq War, said that for him, producing (glass) sculpture is key to coping with post traumatic stress disorder. 'More than talking in a group or something or taking medication, making artwork's been my therapy,' he said. In short, he said, 'art saved my life.'"
