The Service, on view through June 17
The Hammond Regional Arts Center invites the community to an exhibition that honors the men and women who’ve served in the United States military. The Service: A Salute to the U.S. Military will be on display in the Mezzanine Gallery from May 6-June 17, 2022.
It will be held in conjunction with The Pelican State Goes to War: Louisiana in World War II, which focuses on Louisiana’s role in World War II and is on loan from The National WWII Museum in New Orleans. The Service will feature personal memorabilia such as photographs, documents, and uniforms that tell the history of wars such as World War II, Korea, and Vietnam, through the eyes Tangipahoa community members who’ve served in the U.S. military.
“We hope this exhibit, in some small way, pays tribute to those who have, and who are, serving in our country,” said HRAC Executive Director Melissa Griffin. “And not only to the veterans, but we hope this exhibit pays tribute to their families who also make sacrifices while their loved ones are serving.”
Admission to the exhibition is free.
