"Faces of Diplomacy," a traveling exhibit featuring portraits and videos of those who serve on the frontlines of diplomacy, will be on display at the Iowa Memorial Union (IMU) from February 23-25. The free exhibit will be located in Hubbard Commons and may be viewed during IMU open hours, 10 a.m. to 8 p.m.
The portraits and videos in this exhibit tell the story of those who advance diplomatic relations at the U.S. Department of State and U.S. missions around the world. These talented men and women work in different regions abroad, have diverse ethnic and educational backgrounds, and carry out a wide variety of responsibilities. Their diplomatic service to our nation, however, unites them in purpose. Each of them serves by promoting peace and prosperity on behalf of all Americans.
A guest at the celebration of the opening of the U.S. Diplomacy Center Pavilion looks at the "Faces of Diplomacy" exhibit which highlights the diverse and changing face of America's diplomats.
"Faces of Diplomacy" is a collaborative project undertaken by the Department of State’s U.S. Diplomacy Center. The portraits and videos were produced by students from The George Washington University’s Corcoran School of the Arts and Design and the Department of Defense’s Combat Camera crew. The exhibit was made possible through a generous grant from Wallis Annenberg and the Annenberg Foundation to the Diplomacy Center Foundation (DCF). The UI presentation of "Faces of Diplomacy" is sponsored by UI International Programs and the IMU.
The U.S. Diplomacy Center will be the first museum and educational center of its kind dedicated to telling the story of American diplomacy. It will be located in the historic Harry S. Truman Building.
