The 9/11 Peace Story Quilt at The Metropolitan Museum of Art

The 9/11 Peace Story Quilt was designed by Faith Ringgold and constructed in 
collaboration with New York City students ages eight through nineteen. 
The quilt poignantly conveys the importance of communication across cultures
 and religions to achieve the goal of peace. Comprised of three panels, each 
with twelve squares on the theme of peace, the quilt will be displayed alongside
 several original works of art that inspired its content.
