The exhibit focuses on the day-to-day challenges of homeless military veterans. It builds upon the groundbreaking first exhibit, “Portraits of Home: Families in Search of Shelter,” which traveled through Minnesota from 2005-2007.
An opening reception will be held 5-7 p.m. Wednesday, Sept. 15, with remarks from Sen. Sharon Erickson Ropes and Dick Lande, Commander of the Military Order of the Purple Heart, at 6 p.m.
