Windows and Mirrors: Reflections on the War in Afghanistan

Exhibition on display in the Hege Library Atrium, March 25 – April 15, 2011.




Forty artists from around the world, including three Guilford students, and dozens of Afghan school children have contributed their work to create this memorial to the human cost of the war in Afghanistan.
