Bill Schinsky

Bill divides his time between his art and being the Executive Director at the Coachella Valley Art Center. His latest piece is done for a Veterans exhibit at the Marks Gallery, College of the Desert, Palm Desert. The installation is his interpretation of the 1968 TET Offensive's Battle of Hue, Viet Nam. The event was his introduction to Viet Nam and War. Bill used Berkeley Ergonomics wool to represent the 216 American boys killed during the month long battle.  They "float" on a bed of dirt and charcoal bits.
