Remembrance: A Memorial Exhibit on May 22-June 30

The Savannah District U.S. Army Corps of Engineers and the Coastal Georgia Center present Remembrance: A Memorial Exhibit on May 22-June 30, Monday-Saturday, 8 a.m.- 5 p.m. at the Coastal Georgia Center. The exhibit is dedicated to U.S. servicemen and women who have lost their lives in Iraq and Afghanistan and to those who continue to serve. Admission to the event is free.

Remembrance: A Memorial Exhibit, a Merilee Bowers Installation, represents a collective, collaborative artistic response to loss that honors fallen servicemen and women, as well as those who continue to serve. Initially conceived as a “living” exhibit, the memorial gives students and family members an arena in which they can create, in unity, a meaningful, collaborative work of art. It engages the viewers to bring awareness to those who have sacrificed their lives in the war.

There are two events held in conjunction with Remembrance: A Memorial Exhibit. On Tuesday, May 19, Figure Creature Workshops will be held at the Fort Stewart Youth Center at 4-5:30 p.m. and 6:30-8 p.m., and on Tuesday, June 30, Executive Director Merilee Bowers presents “Engage Your Community Through Art” at Fort Stewart’s Club Stewart at 11:30 a.m.- 1 p.m.
