Opening Reception 
Pursuing Justice Through Art 2015

Please join us this Saturday for the Opening Reception of "Pursuing Justice Through Art 2015," from 2 - 4 pm. 

Armenian, Jewish, Cambodian, Bosnian, Rwandan, Sudanese, and Native Americans are only a few of the nationalities that have been affected by genocide. The year 2015 marks the 100th Anniversary of the Armenian Genocide, the 70th Anniversary of the end of the Jewish Holocaust and the 40th Anniversary of the Cambodian Genocide. 

It is the hope that education and awareness through the medium of art presented in this exhibition can be used to help ensure a more peaceful future in the 21st century. 

Artists from around the world will display works rooted in genocide and holocaust memories and commemoration. 

The exhibit runs through April 25, 2015. 

Saturday, April 18, 1-4pm

Mark your calendars for an informative and thought provoking afternoon. Symposium speakers include: Diana Der-Hovanessian, Kim Servart Theriault, Ph.D., Dr. Elliott W. Salloway, Amy Fagin, and Sayon Soeun.
