Today we mark an anniversary. Twenty years ago, two teenagers went on a shooting spree at Columbine High School, killing 13 others before shooting themselves. When I began my Victims Quilt Project, I started with a memorial quilt for the victims of the Columbine shooting so it seemed right to open the exhibit to coincide with the anniversary.
An exhibit of the 14 memorial quilts that I have made for the victims of mass shootings since Columbine in which more than 10 people died at once is now on view at the Arlington Center for the Arts in Arlington, MA until June 10th. Hours are Monday to Friday, 10 AM – 6 PM.
