Lost in the debate over the U.S. role in Afghanistan is the significant toll the war has taken on Afghan civilians. The American Friends Service Committee hopes Thursday’s “Windows and Mirrors” art exhibit will help to shine a light on the thousands of Afghan civilians killed since the U.S. attacked Afghanistan nine years ago.
Windows and Mirrors uses visual art to remind the U.S. public about the human cost of war in Afghanistan. The exhibit features 45 murals donated by U.S. and international artists — along with drawings from Afghan high school students.
On the ninth anniversary of the war in Afghanistan, the national tour of an art exhibit memorializing Afghan civilian casualties will premiere in Philadelphia this month. “Windows and Mirrors: Reflections on the War in Afghanistan” opens on Thursday, Oct. 7, at Arch Street Meeting House, 4th and Arch streets. The American Friends Service Committee (AFSC), a Quaker organization dedicated to peace and nonviolence, sponsors the free exhibit.
AFSC is a Quaker organization devoted to service, development, and peace programs throughout the world. Our work is based on the belief in the worth of every person, and faith in the power of love to overcome violence and injustice. Learn more
