I Am Not Invisible

“I Am Not Invisible” is a remarkable exhibition featuring 20 portraits of Oregon women military veterans.

There are more than 28,000 women veterans in Oregon — a number that has risen steadily over the past three decades — representing almost one-tenth of Oregon’s veteran population.

And yet, women veterans continue to face significant barriers and challenges in accessing necessary health care and other services, while experiencing a lack of recognition unlike their male counterparts. By spotlighting the many faces of this diverse and important segment of the Oregon veteran community, IANI aims to increase awareness and dialogue about women veterans, as well as open viewers’ eyes to the myriad contributions, needs and experiences of women who have served in the military.

The project is the brainchild of PSU Veterans Resource Center Director Felita Singleton and ODVA Women Veterans Coordinator Elizabeth Estabrooks, who also curated the Feb. 24 debut exhibition at the Portland Art Museum. After the display at the Portland Art Museum, the exhibit began a traveling campaign, and will be appearing at various locations throughout the state.

For more information about the project or to arrange to have an IANI display at your event, contact Elizabeth Estabrooks at estabre@odva.state.or.us
