The impact of the Iraq war on New Jersey is the focus of the exhibit "Eyes Wide Open: New Jersey." This exhibit features more than 70 pairs of combat hoots memorializing the U.S. soldiers from New Jersey who have fallen in the Iraq War. A display of shoes represents the thousands of Iraqi civilian causalities.

The exhibit will be on the steps of the old Flemington Court House, Main Street, Flemington, from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. June 28 and June 29. There will be a second display June 29 from 1 p.m. to 5 p.m. at the Flemington Women's Club on Park Avenue, directly behind the old court house.

The Hunterdon Peace Coalition, New Jersey Citizen Action and The Grace United Church of Christ are sponsoring the exhibit. "Eyes Wide Open: New Jersey" will continue to travel around the state.

The exhibit is free and open to the public, although donations are accepted. For more information on the exhibit, visit
