Wells Fargo Bank to host photo exhibit Greg Latza's stirring tribute to South Dakota's World War II veterans jumps from the pages of his book to an intimate photo exhibit, showing at Wells Fargo in Yankton starting July 6.
The public is invited to view the exhibit at Wells Fargo, 200 Cedar St., in Yankton, during regular business hours, July 6-16. Latza will be on hand the first day of the exhibit for a book signing between 11 a.m. and 2 p.m. Wells Fargo will be serving refreshments during that time.
Blue Stars: A Selection of Stories from South Dakota's World War II Veterans, features 44 stories and photo portraits of veterans. The exhibit includes portraits of Darrel Christopherson of Vermillion ,and Yankton's Frank Branaugh and Hod Nielsen.
"There is no way to adequately thank our country's veterans for the sacrifices they made 60 years ago and as years pass, we lose more opportunities to honor them," said Gary Dybsetter, community banking president of Wells Fargo in Yankton and Vermillion. "It is our hope this exhibit will touch the greatest generation as well as the current generations on the home front with family and friends serving in the military and fighting overseas."
Wells Fargo is sponsoring two Blue Stars exhibits which will be traveling the state over the next 16 months. The exhibit to be featured in Yankton is a sampling of photographs from a larger exhibit now being shown at the Visual Arts Center in the Washington Pavilion of Arts and Science in Sioux Falls.
