Eyes Wide Open-The Cost of War to Indiana

Eyes Wide Open-The Cost of War to Indiana

Wednesday, September 15, 2010 - 1:00pm to 11:00pm

The Eyes Wide Open exhibit, created by the American Friends Service Committee (AFSC), is a living memorial to the military personnel and civilians killed in Iraq and Afghanistan-- and a stark reminder of the human cost of war.
 
Eyes Wide Open: The Human Cost of War first opened in Chicago's Federal Plaza with just over 500 pairs of boots in January 2004. Since its last display on Memorial Day weekend 2007 with over 3,400 pairs of boots the exhibition has been divided into state displays to travel to smaller cities and towns.

Currently, there are 166 servicemen and women from Indiana have died in the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan.
