The 9/11 Peace Story Quilt...

The anniversary of the tragic events of 9.11 has come and gone but the memories live on.

The Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City has marked the occasion with a memorial viewing of Faith Ringgold’s 9/11 Peace Story Quilt.  Constructed in collaboration with NYC public school students ten years ago, the quilt poignantly conveys the importance of communication across cultures and religions to achieve the goal of peace. Comprised of three panels, each with twelve squares on the theme of peace, the quilt will be displayed alongside several original works of art that inspired its content.

If you find yourself visiting New York this fall, you might want to check it out.  The quilt will be on displayed through January 22, 2012.
