Drones Quilt Exhibit opens in Brooksville, Maine December 3

BLUE HILL, ME — The Drones Quilt Project, quiltdisplayme161203a nation-wide traveling exhibit of quilts commemorating victims of U.S. drone strikes, will be on display at Reversing Falls Sanctuary in Brooksville in early December. The quilts have been shown in more than 20 U.S. cities, and at The Hague. The quilts are each made up of 36 individually crafted squares — visual reminders of a child or other victim. Many of the squares are dedicated to “Anonymous,” as an estimated 80% of drone victims are unnamed.

The exhibit is co-sponsored by Peninsula Peace & Justice and Reversing Falls Sanctuary (RFS). An opening will be held at the RFS Gallery on Saturday, December 3, from 2 to 4 p.m. Seven quilts will be exhibited. Dud Hendrick, member of Veterans For Peace, will speak on drone warfare and its implications. The public is invited and refreshments will be served. A complete schedule of gallery open times appears on their web site: reversingfalls.org
