INVITATION to special event for RPCVs

This summer and fall, Museum of the Peace Corps Experience will sponsor a West
Coast exhibit celebrating 60 years as seen through Peace Corps posters. Posting
Peace: Peace Corps Posters 1961-2022
, curated by Sheldon Hurst, will be
installed at ArtReach Gallery, 1126 SW Park Ave., Portland, Oregon, from July 10
to October 16, 2022.


We invite you and returned Peace Corps volunteers to an Exhibit Preview on
Saturday, July 9, 5 – 8 pm PT. To register for the free event, visit
https://www.portlandpeacecorps.org/cpages/ppca-store#!/Posting-Peace-Peace-
Corps-Posters-1961-2022/p/468007502/category=0.

The Museum, ArtReach Gallery, and Portland Peace Corps Association, are co-
hosting the exhibit and events.


Peace Corps posters have become icons of global citizenship and adventuresome
volunteers. Did a poster like one of these pique your interest in the Peace Corps?

Please join us to view dozens of other examples, and to meet Peace Corps friends
at ArtReach Gallery, 1126 SW Park Ave., Portland OR, July 10 – October 16, 2022.

Every dollar makes a difference. To support the exhibit financially, please
consider making a small donation of $25, $50 or $100. We will recognize donors
of $500 in the exhibit catalog if your gift is received by June 27, 2022. (Click on the
website and choose DONATE.)


The Museum of the Peace Corps Experience was founded by Portland Peace
Corps Association in 2000. Through its first decade, we hosted exhibits in the
Portland area, including a major 50th anniversary exhibit at the Oregon Historical
Society in 2011. Now we proudly celebrate another Peace Corps milestone – the
60th anniversary – in Portland after expanding to a national initiative in 2016.


Welcoming you to Portland,
Nicola Dino (Ecuador 1994-1997) and Patricia Wand (Colombia 1963-1965)
Co-chairs, Museum of the Peace Corps Experience
