"Windows and Mirrors" Opening Reception

Saturday, September 1, 2012 - 4:00pm - 6:00pm

Join us for an opening of the "Windows and Mirrors" community exhibition with music and stories by Jacob George. Light refreshments will be served. 

Jacob, a 30-year-old, three-tour paratrooper turned peace activist, is a cofounder of A Ride Till The End (ARTTE), a perpetual bicycle protest of the Afghan War that has covered over 7,000 miles in the United States since 2010.

Humanizing the cost of war

As Democratic delegates gather in Charlotte, N.C. to weigh in on their political party’s platform for the next four years, a silent cadre of Afghan faces will ask them to consider the people affected by those policies.

Eighteen murals depicting civilians wounded or killed during the war in Afghanistan will be displayed in the midst of the Democratic National Convention from Sept. 1-8. They are replicas of the murals of "Windows and Mirrors," AFSC’s exhibition of 45 murals created by U.S. artists.
