Peter J. Buotte

Peter Buotte is a sculptor and humanitarian efforts officer. He graduated in 2005 with an MFA from Maine College of Art. Buotte has eighteen years of military experience and has served two years in Iraq, in 2003 and in 2008. While in Iraq, Buotte coordinated civilian affair projects that included hiring linguists, repairing schools, and mentoring governance leaders in the Mahmudiyah region to the south of Baghdad. He has participated in several panels and lectures about the Iraq war. In his current sculptural work, an attempt to update the notion of classic statuary, Buotte works with volunteer veterans who have been severely wounded while deployed in Iraq.
