My Lai memorial exhibit on display

The national My Lai Memorial Exhibit will be at the Coralville Public Library from Friday through Sunday.


The exhibit, created by Chicago artist Mac MacDevitt, commemorates the 50th anniversary of the My Lai Massacre, in which U.S. troops killed more than 500 Vietnamese civilians on March 16, 1968.


The 40-panel exhibition includes photos, printed memories of survivors of the massacre and an interactive oak-block collage that allows visitors to rework images of both the massacre and the American flag.


The exhibit is free, and local veterans will be available during the hours of the exhibit, which is Friday from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m., Saturday from 9:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. and Sunday from noon to 4 p.m.
