Facade from Western Avenue

FACADE PROJECT
A commemorative work-in-progress

Each window on the upper three floors
of the Collaborative building contains the faces
of 9 of the US soldiers who have died in Iraq.
Altogether, the piece shows the faces of 648
of the troops as a tribute and reminder.
~
The installation will be ongoing until the troops
currently stationed in Iraq return home.
