Wage Peace Afghanistan

Windows and Mirrors Pittsburgh

 The turnout to see the Windows and Mirrors exhibit, American Friends Service Committee’s wonderful traveling exhibit of art on Afghanistan from artists around the country, has been very gratifying. Over 800 people attended the opening, which coincided with a downtown gallery crawl. Many of the people attending would not normally come to AFSC events. In all about 1,100 people attended the events or saw the exhibit during the two weeks it was being shown.
