SEASIDE, Ca., November 6, 2019 – California State University Monterey Bay’s (CSUMB) Salinas Center for Arts and Culture launched the “CSUMB Honors Veterans” exhibition today at CSUMB at Salinas City Center with a grand opening event from 6-8 p.m.
The exhibition honors local veterans, Fort Ord alumni and the ongoing connection with CSUMB student veterans during the 25th anniversary of CSUMB’s campus and will be open to the public until January 12, 2020.
The exhibit, featuring Fort Ord historical photographs and veteran-created artwork, is the first in a veteran-inspired series, celebrating CSUMB military veteran and active military student, faculty, staff and military dependents.
The goal is for this exhibit to be the first in a series of exhibits honoring Veterans. This exhibit highlights local veterans that have a special connection to Fort Ord and several who are also connected to CSUMB. The hope is to honor some important Fort Ord Alumni from our community and celebrate an ongoing connection with CSUMB student veterans during the 25th anniversary year of our campus."— CSUMB veteran services coordinator, Giselle Young
The exhibition is a collaborative effort between CSUMB student veterans service coordinator Giselle Young, CSUMB alumna Ana Eckhart, CSUMB Service Learning associate director Andrea Monroe and CSUMB’s director for the CSUMB Center for Arts and Culture, Enid Ryce.
