and Human Rights
Click here to see this exhibit.
This exhibition examines the ways in which textiles - especially
quilts - have been made and used to demonstrate solidarity
with movements dedicated to advancing international human
rights, to mark important events related to human rights activism,
to provide vehicles for the expression of feelings and memories
about human rights violations, and to engage individuals in
actions that will solve human rights issues.
