"Mural art tends toward bluntness. Its images are large, its imagery thick with meaning. The nature of the medium—walls!—lends itself best to simplicity, directness. The audience for walls is, after all, everyone passing by. Walls with murals ask us to stop and look and think. They tell stories about people we know, about our communities. Mural art is surely the best medium for 'Windows and Mirrors: Reflections on the War in Afghanistan,' an exhibit assembled by the American Friends Service Committee and now touring the country."
