Free and open to all. The Migrant Quilt Project is a grassroots, collaborative effort of artists, quilt makers, and activists to express compassion for migrants from Mexico and Central America who died in the Southern Arizona deserts on their way to create better lives for themselves and their families. Materials used in the quilts were collected at migrant layup sites used for rest and shelter on established trails in the Sonoran Desert. Exhibit runs through December 7, 2019 in CHAW’s Gallery at 545 7th St, SE and at Lutheran Church of the Reformation, 212 East Capitol St NE.  General gallery hours at CHAW are: 9:30 am–9:00 pm (M-Th), 9:30 am–6:00 pm (F), and 9:00 am-2 pm (Sat). Quilts at Lutheran Church of the Reformation can be viewed on Sundays throughout the exhibit from 8:00 a.m. - 1:00 p.m. or by appointment by calling (202) 543-4200.
