The development and implementation of an oral history exhibition on the Vietnam War at the Dubuque Museum of Art; retention of 10 positions.

This series of humanities programs asks, “how do we tell the truth in war?” The experience centers on an exhibition of Associated Press photographs that documented and changed history. DuMA will partner with the Grout Museum of History and Science and the University of Dubuque to train student Veterans to record and share the oral histories of Vietnam Veterans. The students will create an exhibition inspired by their experiences. Museum guests will also explore an installation of artifacts inspired by the acclaimed book The Things They Carried. Concurrent exhibitions add perspectives including the war photography of Dubuque journalist Bob Woodward and Ron Testa, an official Navy photographer. Lectures, film screenings and book discussions will expand guests understanding of the role of artists in telling the story. Plans include conversations with Tim O’Brien and art historian Teri Van Dorston and a screening of Spike Lee’s Da 5 Bloods.
