Visual Artists Tackle What Pain Looks Like

Artists are making intractable pain visible.

As the opioid crisis has weighed on the shoulders of both those living with chronic pain and those clinicians trying to help them manage that pain, misrepresentation of what chronic pain truly involves has increased.
