Turner Print Museum Co-sponsoring Children's Art
Exhibit, "A Child's View from Gaza," Oct. 8-18
The Janet Turner Print Museum is one of the sponsors of a local art exhibition, A Child’s View from Gaza, which takes place October 8-18 in CSU, Chico's Cross-Cultural Leadership Center, located in Meriam Library, Suite 172.
A Child’s View from Gaza is the centerpiece of Keeping Hope Alive – Life and Culture in Occupied Palestine, a multimedia educational and cultural experience exploring the richness of Palestinian culture and aspects of Palestinian life.
A Child’s View from Gaza features powerful artworks drawn by Palestinian children in the weeks following Operation Cast Lead in 2008-2009.
In addition to the art exhibition, cultural and educational presentations will be offered, including films, folk dance, literary readings, authentic Palestinian food, folk art, slide-show presentations and more.
The Israel/Palestine Education Campaign of the Chico Peace and Justice Center is sponsoring Keeping Hope Alive in partnership with Chico State’s Cross-Cultural Leadership Center and the Janet Turner Print Museum. The program is included as part of Artoberfest 2012.
Keeping Hope Alive will be held primarily at the Cross-Cultural Leadership Center. The children’s art will be displayed on the walls at CCLC and in display cases in Ayers Hall. Docents will be available at scheduled times to guide viewing of the art exhibit. A schedule of events and more information about each presentation can be found at www.chico-peace.org, www.csuchico.edu/cclc, www.artoberfest.org
