This exhibition is an interdisciplinary public art project that celebrates human rights and global justice, commemorating the 40th Anniversary of the deaths of former Chilean Ambassador Orlando Letelier and co-worker Ronni Karpen Moffitt in Washington, DC on September 21, 1976.
Muralist Francisco Letelier, son of Orlando Letelier, worked in collaboration with youth participants from the Latin American Youth Center (LAYC) to create a large-scale mural in the Museum's sculpture garden. Todas Las Manos encompasses the participation of youth and adult collaborators in a month long exchange that includes academics, researchers, visual artists, and poets.
