4400+ Hometowns to be shown in Sacramento
In March of 2004 I began this piece to memorialize the American servicemen and women killed in Iraq. Each of the fallen has been represented by his or her hometown cut out from a map. It is still a work in progress with over 4,400 hometowns. There are big cities and small towns and everything in between. Communities from all over the United States have been represented in the piece. Many communities have lost more than one person in Iraq. Those cities and towns are represented multiple times.
During July, Starting on July 10 this piece will be included in the Americana show at Tangent Gallery in Sacramento, California.
