I went to see the "Violins of Hope" exhibits in Berks County PA yesterday..... very glad that I did. The exhibits are on display in Reading and Kutztown through Nov 14th. The most in-depth display was at the Goggle Works Center for the Arts in Reading (where I took the photo below; that's MOP rope binding on that violin ! ! !).

FYI, here's a PBS documentary on the Violins of Hope project:

I visited the exhibit some years ago while it was in Nashville. Quite moving. I encourage anyone who is able to make an effort to have the experience.
