Eyes Wide Open Oregon

An exhibition on the human cost of the Iraq War

At Lewis & Clark, March 3, 9:30 a.m. to 5 p.m.

A new exhibit on the human and economic cost of the Iraq war to Oregon will be on display on the Glade, March 3. The exhibit consists of a memorial to those who have lost their lives in the Iraq War, including boots to honor the fallen soldiers from Oregon, hardhats to represent the Oregon contractors killed in Iraq, and a display that recognizes Iraqis who have died in the war.

Members of the Lewis & Clark community and the general public are invited to view the exhibit, make prayer flags, and participate in a reading of the names of the fallen.

The theme of the exhibit is "Peace is Possible," and organizers hope it will provide an opportunity for the campus and community to reflect on that message.

If you have questions, please contact Avery Welkin,

The event is co-sponsored by Student Leadership and Service, Students for Democratic Society, and the Chapel.
