Photojournalist Erin Trieb’s powerful Homecoming Project will be projected to 100,000 visitors on Austin’s Auditorium Shores during the annual 4th of July fireworks display. The Austin Symphony will accompany the project in an audio/visual performance and multimedia film screening depicting the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan. Show starts at 8:30 p.m. Bring a blanket, a picnic, and your love for documentary story-telling.
Homecoming Project volunteers will join the festivities, representing the organization by wearing yellow shirts and selling yellow balloons to help raise funds for local non-profit organizations who provide direct services to veterans.
This is the first of several exhibitions of the project around town. In November and December the images will be displayed at the Dougherty Center. The project will also host Ashley Gilbertson’s “Bedrooms Of The Fallen” in an exhibition in Butler Park.
