Tapestry as Testimony: Arpilleras of Chile
Sponsored by the Institute for Policy Studies and the Kay Spiritual Life Center

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.
