34 Artists Cross Borders for Refugees
A new Schumacher Gallery exhibit at Capital University embodies an artistic quest of compassion for millions of refugees worldwide. Figuratively “crossing borders” into each others’ turf, the visual collage serves as tribute to the resilience of refugees in crisis. Said Hani Hara, one of the painters and a past chair of the JCC’s visual arts committee, “As an immigrant myself, I know how hard it was to be accepted in this wonderful country. Without the help we received along the way, the struggle would have been much harder…. our country is made up of the best that the world has to offer. Everyone that arrives here only wants to make the U.S. better.” A reception will be held at the Gallery on Thursday from 5:00 to 7:30 PM.
