Booth Library is seeking on-campus and East Central Illinois veterans with tattoos to be featured in its spring 2018 exhibit titled “Designs of Duty.”
“Designs of Duty” will focus on veterans and their service-related tattoos. Veterans will be interviewed, as well as have their tattoos photographed. The exhibit will be on display at Booth Library in the spring of 2018 and will be offered for display at other libraries in the region.
We are looking for veterans with tattoos related to their service who are willing to meet for an in-person interview and be photographed for the exhibit. We will ask that they submit a service photo of themselves, and they must agree to allow these photos, videos and information to be included in the exhibit and for publicity purposes.
Booth Library staff would appreciate the opportunity to interview veterans who are willing to share their stories and the inspiration behind their tattoos. Interviews will be scheduled during October and early November.
To participate in “Designs of Duty,” please contact Beth Heldebrandt, public relations director, at firstname.lastname@example.org or 217-581-6064.
