The Middle East Peace Quilt Exhibition is the centerpiece of Peace it Together, a month-long celebration presented by Genesis at the Crossroads and Columbia College Chicago.  Sima Elizabeth Seffrin, a visionary visual artist from Vancouver, British Columbia, conceived the Middle East Peace Quilt.  Seffrin’s two year project pieces together 30 panels created by artists of Israeli, Palestinian, European, and North American descent.  All 30 of the panels will be on display in the Glass Curtain Gallery.

The Peace it Together celebration will present a number of arts programs, exhibitions, performances and lectures during the first two weekends of March.  Peace it Together is a celebration focused on the power of art to bridge diverse cultures and peoples.
