Last week we opened two new temporary exhibitions.
Artist Helen Zughaib’s Stories My Father Told Me will be open until April 19th in our First Floor Gallery. In 2003 Zughaib began illustrating some favorite family stories told by her father. The resulting collection of 23 works is on view as a whole for the first time.
Local/Not Local: Arabic and Iranian Typography Made in California is a group show of 10 artists from mixed Middle Eastern backgrounds who work with Arabic calligraphy. This exhibit was curated by Maece Seirafi and Pouya Jahanshahi – who also have work in the show.
