On Saturday, February 19th, at 685 Venice Blvd, Venice, CA (Old Venice Jail), SPARC’s historic headquarters since 1977, SPARC’s Planet Siqueiros Series hosts an opening exhibition of Windows and Mirrors: Reflections on the War in Afghanistan, a free exhibit sponsored by the American Friends Service Committee (AFSC), a Quaker organization dedicated to peace and nonviolence.

Windows and Mirrors is a collaboration of more than 40 artists from around the world, including U.S. students.  Forty-five, 4-foot by 6-foot panels, each uniquely designed by an artist or group of artists, comprise one large display memorializing Afghan civilian casualties. The exhibit also includes images collected from Afghan high school students by Dr. Zahir Wahab, a professor at Lewis and Clark College who asked young Afghans to draw images from their daily reality.
