Windows and Mirrors - LA

The travelling mural exhibit is now in Los Angeles. Here is a 30 second video slideshow from one of the LA openings. The guest speaker was Tom Hayden. You can find more about the Los Angeles events here.

Windows on Afghanistan: Past, Present, Future

The War in Afghanistan is now the longest in U.S. history, yet for many of us it has been rendered largely invisible.

Windows and Mirrors: Reflections on the War in Afghanistan is an invitation to reflect upon the impact of this war on a civilian population caught in the crossfire.

The artworks are windows on a war-torn country – but they are also mirrors reflecting our identity as citizens of a nation that too often resolves its problems through violence – both at home and abroad.

We are present in every shot fired, every missile launched, and every bomb dropped. But this is not our only option. We also can be present in acts of diplomacy and reconciliation, community reconstruction and peaceful partnership. The choice is ours.
