Please note: This event has already occurred.
After their son Matthew's murder, Judy and Dennis Shepard received thousands of written responses to the tragedy. Individuals shared their outrage and grief at the event, love and support for the family, and concern for the LGBT community. For the first time, a selection of these letters will be displayed to the public. 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, Wyo.
