Tapestry as Testimony: Arpilleras of Chile
An opening reception for this stunning art commemorating the 40th anniversary of the military coup.
September 11, 2013 marks the 40th anniversary of the military coup in Chile, and arpilleras serve as a living testimony to the struggle for human rights and democracy waged by the Chilean people under a repressive military regime that lasted for 17 years. These tapestries represent a living testimony of that struggle and celebrate its dignity and courage.
Join us for this opening reception of this exhibit of stunning arpilleras in the Katzen Arts Center Rotunda.
The exhibit opens on September 11, 2013 with a reception from 6-7 pm at the Katzen Arts Center Rotunda. The exhibit will remain open to the public until September 22, 2013.
