Windows and Mirrors: Reflections on the War in Afghanistan On Display at the Central Library November 12 - December 31

Windows and Mirrors: Reflections on the War in Afghanistan - an exhibit featuringpanels created by international artists and American students to help viewers imagine the experience of Afghan civilians - is on display starting November 12, 2011, at the Central Library, 14 W. 10th St.

In 2009, the American Friends Service Committee put out a nationwide call to artists through the Chicago Public Art Group and the Philadelphia Mural Arts Program, seeking contributions for a traveling memorial to Afghan civilians who have died during the war.

More than 40 muralists donated their talents, designing and painting individual murals on sheets of acrylic cloth. The exhibit creators hope Windows and Mirrors: Reflections on the War in Afghanistan offers viewers the opportunity to reflect upon the impact of the war on the civilian population.

The exhibit will remain on display through December 31, 2011.

The exhibit is made possible by the American Friends Service Committee.

Admission is free. Free parking is available at the Library District Parking Garage at 10th & Baltimore.

Major funding for programs at the Kansas City Public Library is provided by a generous grant from the Ewing Marion Kauffman Foundation.
