Schnormeier Gallery to Host "The Eyes of Freedom" Exhibit
Monday, November 11, 2013
MOUNT VERNON, Ohio - Mount Vernon Nazarene University's Schnormeier Gallery is proud to host "The Eyes of Freedom" exhibit from Monday, November 11 to Saturday, November 16 at the Buchwald Center. This event is free and open to the public.
The result of a dream and over two years of effort, "The Eyes of Freedom" is a memorial honoring the fallen men of the 3rd Battalion 25th Marines' Lima Company based out of Columbus, Ohio. The memorial was first unveiled at the Columbus State House Rotunda in 2008 and has been shown across the country as a reminder of the sacrifices made by the men and women of the armed forces.
There will be a reception on November 11 at 5:00 p.m., as well as a reception with artist Anita Miller on Friday, November 15, from 5:00 p.m. - 7:00p.m.
