MORE THAN A NUMBER
Photo Collection & Traveling Exhibit

Transit Number Picture Why: April 17, 2010 will be the 35th anniversary of the Khmer Rouge takeover of Phnom Penh, Cambodia. T (transit) number photos taken in refugee camps and holding centers, as well as related stories, poems, or words will be collected for display. The traveling exhibit will also consist of dance costumes and photos from the pre-genocide years, "Remember" — portraits of S-21 prisoners painted on rough silk by Rachel Faller, and textile and dance costumes from the post-genocide years. The materials will be available for travel nationwide, with the hope of returning to Lowell on the 40th anniversary of the Khmer Rouge regime for permanent display.
