County leaders say the Violins of Hope exhibit highlights the power of unity and perseverance against hate and violence.
"Restoring these magnificent violins has taken time and patience. It also takes patience and perseverance to eradicate all forms of hate," said county commissioner Scott Britton.
The Violins of Hope showcase will be on display for the next six months in partnership with the Cook County United Against Hate Campaign.
