Salute the upcoming Memorial Day holiday, a day that honors fallen United States Armed Forces, with an exclusive, insiders view of the Iraq War during a limited-time exhibit at Drexel University, Invasion: Diaries And Memories Of War In Iraq.
The free exhibit features multimedia artifacts like a video installation of a 2003 newscast about the Iraq War and photographs by Gary Knight, a photographer whose work has been featured in The New York Times, Newsweek and more.
Explore the war diary of Marine Lt. Timothy McLaughlin as pages from his diary — a true firsthand account — are enlarged to poster-sized pages.
Accounts from journalist Peter Maass, who traveled with Marine Lt. McLaughlin’s military unit in 2003, also fill the exhibit space.
Knight and Maass curated the traveling exhibit.
Invasion: Diaries And Memories Of War In Iraq arrives and leaves mere days before Memorial Day Weekend, so begin the weekend with a visit to the exhibit.
Be sure to catch it before its too late, the exhibit closes on Thursday, May 23. Doors open at 9 a.m. and stay open all day long, but IDs are required for entry after 3 p.m.
