Windows and Mirrors Exhibit and Events

TRAVELING EXHIBIT COMING TO GOUCHER! -- Windows and Mirrors: Reflections on the War in Afghanistan


Wednesday, February 15 – Wednesday, February 22, Lenrow Gallery, 4th Floor, Athenaeum


The war in Afghanistan is now the longest in U.S. history, yet for many of us it has been rendered largely invisible. Windows and Mirrors: Reflections on the War in Afghanistan is an opening and an invitation to reflect upon the impact of this war on a civilian population caught in the crossfire.   This exhibit of murals by Afghan and American artists and students memorializing Afghan civilian deaths and the daily reality of life in Afghanistan is on loan from the American Friends Service Committee.


More information about the exhibit can be found at

Where Do We Go From Here?

To complement the “Windows and Mirrors: Reflections on the War in Afghanistan” exhibit and the “The Human Cost of War” event, students will lead a discussion and workshop on how they can respond to international issues as college students and how the Baltimore College Peace Network might help further these efforts.  The discussion will take place on Tuesday, February 21 at 7 p.m. in the Batza Room in the Athenaeum.
