Pop-up photo exhibition to shine the spotlight on Oregon women veterans
Campaign will kick off Feb. 24 with one-night showing at the Portland Art Museum
I Am Not Invisible, a remarkable presentation featuring 20 portraits of Oregon women military veterans, will be unveiled later this month at a special, one-night community exhibition at the Portland Art Museum.
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, 1219 S.W. Park Ave. 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 exhibit. Guests should check in at the guest services desk upon entry and identify themselves as attending the I Am Not Invisible event.
