Palestine Unlimited - Photo Exhibit and Reception
Date(s) - 04/19/2018
6:00 pm - 9:00 pm
Sunnyvale Presbyterian Church
Palestine Unlimited photo exhibit showcases works by ten artists who employ a diverse approach in storytelling to create expressions about society and life in current day Palestine. The exhibit brings together the works of artists from Gaza, historical Palestine, Jerusalem and the West Bank. Working with themes of space, time, feminism, materialism, and questioning notions of the local and the personal, the artists take us on a journey into the various realms and realities in Palestine today.
RECEPTION: Thursday, April 19. Doors open at 6:00 pm, program starts at 7:00. Two speakers will share about the competition, the artists, and the school, and about visiting Palestine.
Just for fun, we will be showing “The Wanted 18,” a documentary about the citizens of Beit Sahour in their quest to run a dairy farm.
About the photos:
The ten artists were finalists in the Karimeh Abboud Award Competition, a signature initiative of Dar Al Kalima University College of Arts and Culture in Bethlehem. The photographs are part of a traveling exhibition sponsored by Bright Stars of Bethlehem. This is the last stop in Northern California. The church will have a second day of viewing on Thursday, April 26th, at 6:00 pm – 7:00 pm (without reception).
The Dar Al-Kalima Model School (Arabic: مدرسة دار الكلمة النموذجية), meaning “The House of the Word”) is located on the hilltop Mt. Murair campus and serves students in grades K-12. The school is coeducational and Lutheran-based, serving both Christian and Muslim students from the towns, villages, and refugee camps of the Bethlehem area.
