Windows and Mirrors: Reflections on the War in Afghanistan is a traveling exhibit that provides an opportunity to see ourselves in depictions of the war in Afghanistan through the eyes of artists and children. The American Friends Service Committee (AFSC), a Quaker organization dedicated to peace and nonviolence, is bringing this exhibit to the URI Providence Campus Urban Arts and Culture Program for the Summer with free events and educational programming developed by URI Providence Campus Urban Arts and Culture Program to accompany this dynamic exhibit.
Windows and Mirrors is a collaboration of more than 40 artists from around the world, including U.S. students. Fifty-two, 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.
