The art exhibit Visioning Human Rights in the New Millennium: Quilting the World’s Conscience is a call for action. The struggle for human rights is global. Through artistic expression, utilizing the canvas of quilts, the artists in this exhibition interpret the 30 articles of the Declaration of Human Rights. In liberation struggles throughout the history of the world, arts activism has been central to the fight for human rights. The exhibition was organized by Dr. Carolyn Mazloomi and the Women of Color Quilters Network & Friends in honor of the 70th anniversary of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights. Our objective is to educate and inspire people to understand the meaning of human rights in its best practice, as well as human rights violations around the world, and the terrible consequences resulting from intolerance and bigotry. The art works encourage reflection, and create dialogue around some of the most challenging human rights issues of our times. It is our goal to broaden the human mind by using art to communicate, engage, teach and heal. The exhibition will be toured for two years.
