Illustration major students in a University of Connecticut “Topics in Illustration” fall 2010 class created a poster series using a variety of media to capture what they felt was the essence of the Peace Corps in honor of our 50th anniversary. These prints are currently on display at Peace Corps HQ in Washington, D.C. and will become a travelling exhibition throughout the University of Connecticut’s regional campus libraries.
