Patriot Rovers Documentary Exhibit November 6-30, 2018
This spring, High Point University students from the School of Art and Design participated in an service learning course taught by Benita VanWinkle, assistant professor of art. The documentary photography course allowed students to work with and photograph Patriot Rovers, a non-profit service dog training facility located in High Point, North Carolina.
Many military veterans across the United States suffer from post-traumatic stress disorder and/or traumatic brain injury. In order to aid these veterans with stress, anxiety, seizures or physical limitations, dogs are trained all across the country as service dogs at organizations like Patriot Rovers.
The students’ photographs from the exhibit “Serving Soldiers, Honoring Heroes” will be showcased on the High Point University Campus, in the Norton Gallery, Norton Hall from November 6 to November 30. The exhibit is free and open to the public.
All veterans and guests are encouraged to park at Oak Hollow Mall (921 Eastchester Drive) in High Point. Shuttles will begin running at 7:30 a.m. from Oak Hollow Mall.
