"Using as a catalyst a selection of the nearly 10,000 cards and letters that were sent to Judy and Dennis Shepard in the aftermath of their son Matthew's murder, the exhibition considers the larger themes of empathy, community response and personal responsibility. This exhibition is shown in conjunction with The Lincoln Legacy Project production of The Laramie Project, a deeply complex portrait of a community's response to the 1998 hate-crime murder of Matthew Shepard, a gay college student living in Laramie, Wyoming."
