Binh Danh will speak about his work: art and science, life and death, past and present, history and immortality. His presentation will include original Daguerreotypes from the Lafayette Library's exhibition (March 21) The Crosses: A Protest Against Forgetting.

Danh will later share the stage with Jeff Heaton (The Crosses of Lafayette), and Fred Norman (Veteran, peace activist) will read from "A Hill of Poems" (his annual readings at the Crosses of Lafayette).

The Crosses: A Protest Against Forgetting exhibition consists of digital prints of
Daguerreotype images by Binh Danh. Over several years, Danh documented
The Crosses of Lafayette. These images preserve moments in the history of the
memorial and our collective memory of war.
