Love is also a foundational concept in the exhibition, which focuses on the Tutu’s love for each other, in addition to their unrequited love for humanity. Like the 2014 Conscience of the Human Spirit&#58; The Life of Nelson Mandela, the exhibition will consist of 30” square quilts made by invited artists from South Africa, those in the U.S. affiliated with the US-based Women of Color Quilt Network (WCQN), and some selected additional invited U.S. artists. The accompanying full-color publication contains an image of each quilt as well as artist statements detailing how their quilt is an interpretation of the Tutus’ legacy. To provide social, cultural and historical context, the publication also includes several essays that illuminate their incomparable contributions to the struggle for human rights. Both the quilt exhibition and catalog intends to inspire viewers to connect with the power of a concerted effort to respect and defend humanity. &#160;</div>GP0|#e6f265b0-0340-4296-abb9-8535f46a8477;L0|#0e6f265b0-0340-4296-abb9-8535f46a8477|Clock Tower Centre Garage;GTSet|#77ffa18a-c716-4e28-9e0f-14946dccab8f0763607263Projects@tutu.org.zawww.tutu.org.zahttps://www.facebook.com/pages/The-Desmond-Leah-Tutu-Legacy-Foundation/1400262613528921https://twitter.com/TutuLegacy<img alt="" src="/sites/waterfrontcontent/Home%20Page%20Images/Desmond_Tutu_380.png" style="BORDER:0px solid;" />GP0|#1d86d341-0eaa-4d67-97a2-d77258073d8e;L0|#01d86d341-0eaa-4d67-97a2-d77258073d8e|Family;GTSet|#75375da6-0815-46ce-a6c6-47b9173f8b3101<img alt="" src="/sites/waterfrontcontent/Home%20Page%20Images/Desmond_Tutu_265x180.png" style="BORDER:0px solid;" /><div class="ExternalClass656072CC2A9949F1B62DB899D3EA49C2"><p>​N/A</p></div>09h00 - 17h00FreeGP0|#b2490bc8-75c8-4650-ac4c-0fadbc9204fc;L0|#0b2490bc8-75c8-4650-ac4c-0fadbc9204fc|ubuntutu-life-legacies-of-love-and-ction;GTSet|#8dbb8159-f73a-4db5-89b5-12dd3cd66408 Mandela Gateway Museum The Desmond and Leah Tutu Legacy Foundation (DLTF) and Michigan State University Museum
