WINDOWS AND MIRRORS: Reflections on the War in Afghanistan
is a traveling exhibit that makes a powerful statement on a nearly invisible reality. The 28 panels created by international and US artists and 20 drawings by Afghan students help us imagine the experience of Afghan civilians – from death and destruction to hopes for peace. www.windowsandmirrors.org
Visits by groups are encouraged. Please contact Adam Barrett for more info and to make arrangements
Join us for the Opening Reception for Windows and Mirrors.
Windows and Mirrors is a collaboration of more than 40 artists from around the world, including U.S. students. Forty-five, 4-foot by 6-foot panels, each uniquely designed by an artist or group of artists, comprise one large display memorializing Afghan civilian casualties.
Civilian casualties are commemorated in Windows and Mirrors: Reflections on the War in Afghanistan, a traveling exhibition coming to the Godwin-Ternbach Museum at Queens College for the second stop on its cross-country tour. The show features fifty 4’ x 6’ panels on parachute fabric made by an international group of artists, including participants from Queens College. The exhibition also introduces images collected by Zahir Wahab, a professor of education at Lewis and Clark College who visited Afghanistan and asked high school students to draw images from their daily reality.
