EXHIBITIONS

The Things They Carried

Opening February 15, 2017

The Things They Carried is loosely based on the book by Tim O’Brien and offers a glimpse into veterans’ personal experiences of the war. Working in conjunction with local veterans groups, the stories of Orange County veterans are gathered and told through the personal objects they carried into conflict. Some stories from the book The Things They Carried will be added to the exhibition and members of the community will be invited to share their experiences as well, especially veterans from the Gulf War. The exhibition will consist of the objects that individual veterans carried with them as well as film, audio, photography, text and art.
