Eyes Wide Open, created by the American Friends Service Committee, is an exhibit and a memorial to inform the public and remember those lost in the Iraq war.  Combat boots and shoes represent individual soldiers and civilians killed, and act as a physical reminder of the immense human cost of war.

The Eyes Wide Open exhibit will visit Swarthmore College on Monday, March 22, 2010 to commemorate the March 20th anniversary of the start of the Iraq war in 2003.  The exhibit will be located in McCabe Library and is free and open to the public.

This event is co-sponsored by Students for a Democratic Society and the Swarthmore Peace and Conflict Studies.
