Stamps of Hope Syrian Refugee Art Exhibition
October 2 - November 1
A traveling exhibit showcasing artwork by Syrian refugees living at the Zaa’tari refugee
camp in Jordan is on exhibit in the Overbrook gallery from October 2nd-November 1st
The paintings and drawings capture the hopes and dreams of those displaced by the Syrian war that began in 2011.
Rihab Sawah, assistant professor at Lincoln Land Community College and organizer of the exhibition, will be giving a lecture on campus October 25th in Room 1300 from 6-7pm.
Other than hope, the artists want to send a message of peace through their artwork, Sawah said. “They have a vision of a future that would include new hopes and dreams for their children.”
