Windows and Mirrors Exhibit Opening Reception
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.
The exhibit also includes images collected from Afghan high school students by Dr. Zahir Wahab, a professor at Lewis and Clark College who asked young Afghans to draw images from their daily reality. The drawing, along with other multi-media works will be on display at our satellite site, WonderRoot.
- “Windows and Mirrors” is a touring art exhibit that draws attention to the enormous human cost of war in Afghanistan. It consists of 45 artworks donated by artists the U.S. and France.
- We mourn all lives lost and damaged by war –Afghans as well as U.S. and allied troops. We call on all sides to negotiate, rather than continue this conflict.
- The name Windows and Mirrors comes from the artists’ vision. In this exhibit, the eyes of artists become “windows” on a war-torn country, windows that also become “mirrors” reflecting our own identity as a nation at war.
