In this Saturday, Oct. 21, 2017 photo, a visitor walks through an art installation of 17,000 green sticks, in memory of those missing since the civil war, in Beirut, Lebanon. Zena El Khalil’s art exhibit has tapped into wounds more than forty years old in war-scarred Lebanon. “Sacred Catastrophe: Healing Lebanon” is being hosted in a landmark building in the center of Beirut, a reminder of the country’s 1975-1990 civil war.
