Join Guest Curator Nicholas Anderson as he discusses how his exhibit of Holyoke Veterans’ Uniforms came together, and hear his ideas about service and community.  Learn how his interests shaped this display and what he would like visitors to take away from the experience of connecting with these uniforms.

The history of military service in Holyoke spans back to the nineteenth century with many distinguished service members. He is now pleased to discuss the work of curating an exhibit such as this, as well as present some of the personal histories attached to these uniforms.
