A Photo Exhibit of Women Veterans In Oregon June 14-17 at the Oregon State Capitol
I Am Not Invisible is a remarkable exhibition featuring 20 portraits of Oregon women military veterans. Curated in 2017 by the Oregon Department of Veterans’ Affairs, the exhibit aims to increase awareness and recognition of the contributions women have made in service to their country in uniform. By spotlighting the many faces of this diverse and important segment of the Oregon veteran community, the I Am Not Invisible exhibit broadens the dialogue about women veterans, as well as open viewers’ eyes to the myriad contributions, needs and experiences of women who have served in the military.
Since the launch in 2017, the exhibit has gained national attention and accolades, including being displayed at the U.S. Capitol and federal Department of Veterans’ Affairs building in Washington, D.C. Numerous other state veteran agencies have joined this effort and have created their own state women veterans I Am Not Invisible exhibits to honor the contributions and recognize the challenges many women veterans face after service.
The exhibit will be at the state Capitol for two days on Friday, June 14 and Monday, June 17. We invite the public to stop by the exhibit and learn more about the contributions that women have made to ensure our freedom.
