Milwaukee Art Museum -- Calendar

Gallery Conversation: Veterans Book Project

Tuesday, July 30, 2013, 1:30 PM

The Veterans Book Project is a collection of fifty books that individuals who have participated in and been affected by the American wars in Iraq and Afghanistan created in collaboration with artist Monica Haller. Together, the books create an archive—a container of memory traces and image fragments from wars that are not talked about nearly enough. The library presentation invites others to join the conversation and share these objects for deployment.

Experience the books more fully by participating in a reading workshop. Visitors are first invited to read quietly together, and then to share their reflections in a facilitated conversation.
