Art Exhibit: “Our Home is the Holy Land”

February 6 @ 9:00 am - March 18 @ 4:30 pm

Free

The exhibit features 26 pieces in all. The majority of the works are from “Through The Checkpoint,” augmented by four pieces from “Children of Bethlehem.” The combination portrays the diversified experience of life in the Holy Land today, paired with a specific look into the lives of Palestinian youth.

“Through The Checkpoint” consists of 22 photographs mounted on foam board and hung by wire, ranging in size from 16×24 inches to 36×48 inches. The four portraits belonging to “Children of Bethlehem” are photographs printed on 16×20 rolled canvas, hung by wire strung from a dowel mounted by grommets at the top of the canvas. Each photograph is paired with an audio interview accessible by smartphone.

“Through the Checkpoint” was created in 2016 in partnership with the Creative Visions foundation to provide vision and voice to life lived amidst the conflict in Palestine-Israel. In 2018, “Children of Bethlehem” was initiated in response to witnessing depression, anxiety, and other trauma among Palestinian youth primarily caused by being among four generations in Palestine-Israel who have only known life under military control and colonial power. “Children of Bethlehem” is being developed in partnership with Creative Visions Foundation and Dar Al-Kalima School in Bethlehem.
