ARMY HERITAGE CENTER FOUNDATION HOSTS PREVIEW OF NEW EXHIBIT ON COMBAT PHOTOGRAPHY
MYRIAD WILL OPEN AT THE U.S. ARMY HERITAGE AND EDUCATION CENTER ON MARCH 2, 2024
CARLISLE, PA – The Army Heritage Center Foundation (AHCF) will host a special preview of Myriad, a new exhibit of contemporary Army combat photography at the U.S. Army Heritage and Education Center, on Thursday February 29, 2024.
“Each photo in the Myriad exhibit captures a moment in the life of the American soldier of this generation,” said Julie Germany, president of AHCF. “Yet each of those moments–and photos–is filled with infinite possibilities and incredible narratives that will change the way patrons view the Army and its rich history and capabilities.”
Myriad will celebrate and explore the diversity of today’s Army, serve as a showcase to the many jobs and Military Occupational Specialties available to today’s force, and the numerous global destinations where the Army is present today.
The preview event will allow patrons to experience the exhibit before it opens to the public on March 2, 2024, and discuss it with curators Molly Bompane and Elizabeth Loomer.
Molly Bompane has worked for the United States Army for over 18 years. During that time, she has worked as a Museum Specialist for the First Armored Division Museum in Baumholder, Germany, the Curator of Photography for the U.S. Army Heritage and Education Center (USAHEC) in Carlisle, PA, the Chief Curator of U.S. Army Europe in Wiesbaden, Germany and returned to USAHEC in 2017 and now serves as Senior Curator and the Chief of Exhibits.
