Former Abu Ghraib detainees’ stories and faces immortalized at Linfield Gallery exhibit

Regional and local newspapers and radio stations featured the gallery’s powerful “Bearing Witness” exhibit, on display through the end of April.

The Oregonian, the News Register, NPR-affiliate Jefferson Public Radio and Portland’s KBOO Community Radio spotlighted the first Pacific Northwest exhibition of artist Daniel Heyman’s Abu Ghraib portraits, “Bearing Witness.” The portraits and words are charged with emotion, politically provocative, and in light of current events in the Middle East, incredibly relevant.
