    This summer and fall, Museum of the Peace Corps Experience will host a West Coast exhibit celebrating 60 years as seen through Peace Corps posters. The posters may be viewed from July 10 to October 16, 2022, at ArtReach Gallery on the Park Blocks in Portland, Oregon. 

    We would like to invite you to the Exhibit Preview on Saturday, July 9, 5 – 8 pm PT. To receive details about the event, sign up for Museum membership (it’s free). The Museum will co-host the exhibit and related events with ArtReach Gallery and Portland Peace Corps Association. 

    Every dollar makes a difference. Show your support for the exhibit by making a small donation of $25, $50, or $100 by clicking the "Donate" button on the Museum website.

    The Museum of the Peace Corps Experience was founded by Portland Peace Corps Association in 2000. Through its first decade, we hosted exhibits in the Portland area, including a major 50th-anniversary exhibit at the Oregon Historical Society in 2011. In 2016, we expanded to a national initiative and we are proud to celebrate another Peace Corps anniversary — the 60th — in Portland.

    Peace Corps posters have become icons of global citizenship and adventuresome Volunteers. 

    Please join Patricia Wand (Colombia 1963–65) and Nicola Dino (Ecuador 1994–97) and Co-chairs, Museum of the Peace Corps Experience to meet Peace Corps friends at ArtReach Gallery in Portland between July 10 and October 16, 2022.
