The Arab American National Museum had two of our traveling exhibitions open in the last week.  In addition to the Patriots & Peacemakers exhibition which opened in San Antonio (see yesterday’s post), our Creative Dissent: Arts of the Arab World Uprisings exhibition opened last week at Bryn Mawr College, just outside of Philadelphia, PA.

The museum is partnering with members of The National Network for Arab American Communities (NNAAC), a project of ACCESS, to present this exhibition at venues across the country. In Philadelphia, NNAAC member Al Bustan Seeds of Culture is partnering with Bryn Mawr College to promote the exhibition and present relevant programming.

Here are a few photos from their opening reception which featured a presentation by Dr. Christiane Gruber, one of the exhibition’s curators.
