Mary Vincent, an AFSC-Kansas City Program Committee member, participated in the Northeast Kansas City Arts Chalk Walk Festival through the sponsorship of AFSC and the KC Iraq Task Force.

She and a partner produced a “square” of chalk art depicting a pair of Eyes Wide Open combat boots with the caption “The Cost of War.” Hundreds of Festival participants were reminded of the ongoing costs of the Iraq and Afghanistan war by the image.
