"Tapestry as Testimony: Arpilleras of Chile"
at American University's Katzen Arts Center
On view Wednesday, September 11th - Sunday, September 22nd

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.
