Windows and Mirrors: Reflections on the War in Afghanistan

Windows and Mirrors: Reflections on the War in Afghanistan

Friday, June 3, 2011 - 9:00pm to Saturday, June 25, 2011 - 1:00am

OPENING RECEPTION
Friday, June 3
5pm-9pm
Music from Afghanistan and the region provided by DJ Kyle Long of Cultural Cannibals. Refreshments provided by Earth House Cafe.

Windows and Mirrors is a travelling mural exhibit that makes a powerful statement on a nearly invisible reality.

The mural panels created by international artists and US students help us imagine the experience of Afghan civilians - from death and destruction to hopes for peace. Drawings by Afghan students in Kabul – collected in June 2010 – provide an up close look at life in a war zone.

This mural is not a single painting, but an oversized statement on the human cost of war. It is not the voice of one person, but that of an engaged artistic community. Their collective voice comes through with power and volume, speaking to us on both intellectual and emotional levels.

The "windows" they have created to help us feel the impact on the Afghan people, become "mirrors" reflecting our own identity as citizens of a nation at war — and call us to act.

June 3-24, 2011
Exhibit hours:
Mon-Fri 11am-9pm
Saturday 9am-9pm
