I Remember: Memories From Wartime

Comment from a German living under Hitler who emigrated to the United States after WW2

Visitors to Call of Duty: Kansans in World War II had an opportunity to leave their thoughts about a significant person, place or event from a past or present wartime experience.

From battle stories, honoring lost loved ones and recalling funny observations to dreams of peace and protesting the horrors of war, over 300 people responded. Some chose to write on post-it notes which came from another interactive part of the exhibit.

The originals have been archived here at the Library in Special Collections. If you would like to participate, call 580-4510 for information.

I've been the Sabatini Gallery's associate curator since 2004 and social media coordinator since 2008. My passion is helping people “get“ art, and by that I mean creating an environment both in-house and online which fosters a greater understanding, confidence, and sense of enjoyment from the art experience. Art should be easy to access and available to everyone. I take helping people very seriously.
