I had last visited Bethlehem in 2008. Few of the pieces I saw then on the Separation Wall or in the city itself remain. The wall and its surrounding environs continue, though, to serve as a canvas for a range of – largely political – art. Here’s a bit of what my son and I captured during our recent visit:

    I love that these artist can do what most people in the world can’t do… and that’s beautification. They can go and turn rubble from a life time war zone and make works of art out of them keep up the great work… i love it.
