Since 1996, The Wall That Heals (a half-scale replica of the Vietnam Veterans Memorial in Washington, D.C.) has been touring the United States in remembrance of the names enshrined on the Memorial and as a joint promotion/press conference for the History Channel’s new mini-series, “Vietnam in HD.” Created by the Vietnam Veterans Memorial Fund, the exhibition tours the country to raise awareness for the program (which has since aired) and to bring solace for surviving veterans, families, and friends.
In collaboration with The History Channel’s nationwide campaign, “Call for Photos,” The Wall That Heals recently traveled to New York City, Philadelphia, and Atlanta, collecting a photo for each of the 58,272 names displayed on its front. Acting as CEG’s event execution partner, glue handled all aspects of site planning and management, technical supervision, and audio and visual management of the wall, as well as a standalone press conference in Chicago.
glue was honored to take part in this remarkable tribute. Thank you to CEG, the History Channel, and the Vietnam Veterans Memorial Fund for inviting us along on this journey.
