The University of Southern Mississippi Museum of Art and University Libraries present the exhibit, Baghdad Beyond the Wire, from January 27 to March 2, 2011. Lt. David Holland, a native Mississippian on assignment as a military engineer in Iraq, was stirred by the images of the civilians negotiating their daily lives in the neighborhoods of Baghdad. The lieutenant carried with him a rifle and a Nikon on his excursions and brought back home a moving document of the Iraqi people during wartime. Baghdad Beyond the Wire showcases Holland's photographs in two campus locations: the Gallery at Cook Library and the Museum of Art, where sculptures by Claudia DeMonte will also be on display. All are invited to an opening reception in the Museum of Art, January 27 at 4:00.
