Opening Reception for “Brothers in Arms” Photo Exhibit

Austin History Center

Moving past unemotional statistics, the images and stories in the exhibit attempt to account for the more significant fact that each one of them had a name, a family, friends and a community from which they drew a personal sense of what mattered. The reception is free and open to the public, and light refreshments will be served.
