CUNY.edu: Afghan War Casualties Memorialized Through the Eyes of World Artists and Afghan Youth
FLUSHING, NY: Civilian casualties are commemorated in Windows and Mirrors: Reflections on the War in Afghanistan, a traveling exhibition coming to the Godwin-Ternbach Museum for the second stop on its cross-country tour. The show features fifty 4’ x 6’ panels on parachute fabric made by an international group of artists, including participants from Queens College. The exhibition also introduces images collected by Dr. Zahir Wahab, a professor of education at Lewis and Clark College who visited Afghanistan and asked high school students to draw images from their daily reality.
Organized by the American Friends Service Committee (AFSC)—a Quaker organization dedicated to peace and nonviolence—Windows and Mirrors comes to Queens from its debut at the historic Arch Street Meeting House in Philadelphia on Thursday, October 7.
