Commemorating the 50th Anniversary of the Peace Corps

To commemorate the Peace Corps 50th anniversary, students in the fall 2010 “Topics in Illustration,” class taught by professor Cora Lynn Deibler, created a poster series using a variety of media to capture what they felt was the essence of the Peace Corps.  The exhibit is the University of Connecticut Libraries’ first traveling exhibit of student work.  After being presented in the Thomas J. Dodd Research Center, the exhibit was displayed at the Peace Corps headquarters in Washington, D. C., and is now traveling throughout the University of Connecticut’s regional campus libraries.
