Veterans History Project Goes Online

Just in time for Memorial Day, the Library of Congress’ Veterans History Project, an initiative of the American Folklife Center, has made available the personal stories of 21 U.S. military veterans. The interviews can be found online at www.loc.gov/vets.

The Library plans to expand the initial digitized offerings to include other stories from the 7,000-strong collection.

Also last week, the Library announced that the project would begin collecting the stories of USO performers who entertained U.S. troops abroad over the years.

Artists Sought To Design Signs

The D.C. Commission on the Arts and Humanities is accepting applications from artists to create commercial signs that incorporate artistic elements, to be placed along the H Street Northeast corridor.

The initiative, part of the “REVIVAL: The H Street NE Strategic Development Plan,” seeks to promote distinct neighborhood identities in commercial corridors.

The competition is open to all professional artists, though District of Columbia residents will be given preference.

Deadline for submission is 5:30 p.m. June 13. For details and an application form, e-mail rachel.dickerson@dc.gov or call (202) 724-5613 or (202) 727-3148 TDD.
