Collins Gallery Exhibit
Multnomah Country Library, 2003
The second exhibit by CMPCE was in the Collins Gallery on the third floor of the historic Multnomah County Library in
Portland, Oregon. It drew from the artifacts brought home by returned volunteers serving all over the world. The high
traffic afforded by the location brought the experiences of Peace Corps volunteers to the attention of many people.
Some people recognized objects from their homeland and cautioned us to be careful that no woman touched a
particular mask. We were able to reassure her that the mask had cracked and thus no longer had its original powers.
