"Eyes Wide Open," sponsored by the American Friends Service Committee, came to Greensboro, North Carolina, for two days in January 2005.

Each pair of boots – about 1,572 at that time – represented a member of the U.S. Armed Forces killed in Iraq.

More than 3,100 people visited the exhibit at The Depot, the city's restored train station. Today it would be impossible to stage the exhibit there – there's not enough room for the additional boots.

After a nationwide tour, Eyes Wide Open is on hiatus.
