Art Exhibit Opening: 100 Days of Silence

Tuesday, April 8, 2014 @ 12:00 pm - 3:00 pm

The Center for Holocaust, Human Rights & Genocide Education at Brookdale (Chhange) presents 100 Days of Silence, a dynamic art initiative that commemorates the 20th Anniversary of the 1994 Genocide against the Tutsi in Rwanda.

In the 100 days from April 7 to July 4, 1994, some 800,000+ men, women and children of Rwanda were murdered. The world stood by in silence. Chhange’s commemoration of this genocide is like no other: it joins together students, educators, community members, genocide survivors and respected, renowned leaders from across the United States to experience history through art. Participants created artistic responses using life size forms as canvases, making a powerful statement about genocide and humanity.

Please join us for the Exhibit Opening on Tuesday, April 8, from 12 – 3 PM, at the Center for Holocaust, Human Rights & Genocide Education (adjacent to the Bankier Library, on the main Lincroft campus).

View the exhibit between Monday – Thursday from 10am – 4pm, now through July 3.  Please visit www.chhange.org for more information. 100 Days of Silence is Sponsored by Provident Bank Foundation.
