          About This Event

          Summary

           Opening reception for the exhibition Why Guantánamo?  

          In 2012, 21 Graduate students from the museum studies and public history programs at the IU School of Liberal Arts at IUPUI were among the 100 students at 11 universities that developed two panels for Why Guantánamo?   The exhibition explores the century-long history of the US naval station at Guantánamo Bay, Cuba, and is a project of the Guantánamo Public Memory Project, which seeks to build public awareness of, and foster dialogue on the future of this place and the policies it shapes.

          Students were responsible for researching, writing, and selecting the photographs for the panels.  Those in the “Introduction to Museum Studies” class produced the panel “Arts of Detention,” and students in the “Guantánamo Project” class produced the panel “Guantánamo Hits Home.” Students who helped develop these panels in the traveling exhibit will be on hand to talk to guests.

          Opening Reception and Lecture: Wednesday, April 10, 2013, Cultural Arts Gallery, 2nd floor of the IUPUI Campus Center, 6:00-7:00 pm. View the exhibition and meet the IUPUI students who created it. Lecture: 7:00 p.m.-8:30 p.m., Wednesday, April 10, 2013, IUPUI Campus Center, Room 450A

          Paid parking is available in the Vermont Street parking garage, which is connected to the IUPUI Campus Center: http://parking.iupui.edu/visitors.do

          Sponsors of the exhibit’s appearance at IUPUI include: the museum studies program, the public history program, the history department, and the international studies program, all units of the IU School of Liberal Arts at IUPUI, and the Museum Studies Club.
