Thank You for Your Service
January – April 2013
THANK YOU FOR YOUR SERVICE: A Visual Collage and Series of Conversations with Military Veterans
Launched with the support of a number of community-based veteran service organizations, the Office of the Dean of Students/Student Veteran Affairs, and the UIC ROTC, this exhibition and related programs were designed to provide a welcoming and creative space for veterans and reservists to share their experiences; to build the capacity of those who have been impacted by military service to utilize creative formats to share their stories; explore how social stigmas and politics, technology and the continually shifting political landscape shape the ways that civilians relate to vets; and finally to foster an environment that promotes understanding between veterans and civilians. Curated by AACC Director and staff. Supported in part by funding from the Office of the Vice Provost for Undergraduate Affairs/Dean, Honors College.
