I Am Not Invisible
Join us for the opening celebration of I Am Not Invisible, a remarkable presentation featuring 20 portraits of Oregon women military veterans. The project, which is a joint effort of Portland State University’s Veterans Resource Center and the Oregon Department of Veterans’ Affairs, is intended to shine a spotlight on women veterans, whose contributions, experiences and needs are too often ignored or overlooked socially, politically and legally.
The debut of I Am Not Invisible will take place from 5 to 7:30 p.m. Friday, Feb. 24, at the Portland Art Museum in the Andree Stevens Boardroom. Many of the women veterans who participated in the project, as well as the photographer, Sally Sheldon, will be in attendance.
Complimentary admission is available to those attending the event. Guests should check in at the guest services desk upon entry and identify themselves as attending the I Am Not Invisible event.
After the display at the Portland Art Museum, the exhibit will begin a traveling campaign, appearing at various locations throughout the state, including PSU. For more information about the Feb. 24 showing or the project in general, contact ImNotInv@pdx.edu.
