Uprooted: The Art of Refugees
on exhibit May 2 – September 2, 2018
Conflicts around the globe and the current political climate have put an acute focus on the plight of refugees. Six refugee artists from different areas of the world, including Iraq, Ethiopia, and Somalia, share paintings and drawings that express the stories of their personal journeys.
Memories, dreams, and the history of their respective homelands are depicted, as well as the transitions and changes arising from their new lives in the USA. The participating artists include Fetunwork Amedie, Ahmad AlKarkhi, Alemzewd Alemu, Khalid Alaani, Rand Shihab and Abdurahman Abukam Mohamed.
