To mark the 10th anniversary of the beginning of the U.S. war in Afghanistan on Oct. 7, 2011, a group of New England artists and collectives have made banners that speak about the decade of fighting and have hung them from highway overpasses around greater Boston and Providence. Follow these links to see banners by participating artists: Damian Cote, Jay Zehngebot (his banner in Providence pictured below), The Institute for Infinitely Small Things, Maria Molteni, Kari Percival, Jill Slosburg-Ackerman and Marilyn Pappas, Human Rights Initiative organized by Gloucester High School students, Fourth Wall Project, Greg Cook (his banner in Boston pictured at bottom) and Anthony Traver. The overall aim of the project, which was organized by artist and journalist Greg Cook, is to prompt reflection on what it has meant for our country to be at war for 10 years.
