Oberlin Exhibition Energizes Volunteers

The three-day stay of Eyes Wide Open: An Exhibition on the Costs of the Iraq War in Oberlin, Ohio was a resounding success. Forty volunteers made the three-day stay memorable as they handed out leaflets and talked with visitors from both out of state and out of the country. Over 1,000 people visited the exhibit which was covered extensively by several local Television stations.

The Elyria, Ohio and Lorraine, Ohio newspapers covered the exhibition on their front pages and the Cleveland Plain Dealer had a photo on the front page of the Metro section.
