From war-torn Syria, after nearly two years of extreme violence, armed conflict and massive physical and human destruction, Syrian artists are expressing their desire and courage for freedom through peaceful artistic mediums. Building on Syria’s deep historical art and cultural traditions, Syrian artists have been exploring a wide range of mediums to convey their experiences and emotions, interpreting the events around them in personal styles and communicating bold dissent.
These courageous risk-takers represent the future of Syria--a Syria where the young generations are using creative powers to promote peace and freedom for their people and passionately engage and inspire others toward the rebuilding of a new Syrian nation.
Syria Artvolution: Expressions of Freedom exhibits a captivating multimedia show of acclaimed Syrian artists and musicians. These poignant works forward insight into the Syrian experience, telling a visual tale of a peoples’ desire for dignity, freedom, and peace.
The exhibition is curated and produced by Honey Al Sayed and Amanda M. Williams-Vasquez, and will be accompanied by artist panels, workshops, and musical performances. Proceeds raised at the events will be donated to the FREE-Syria Foundation and RO'YA for a Better Syria, for humanitarian aid and social development.
