The Opening Reception for Timeless Theme of Persian Perspective will be Saturday, June 15, from 5-8 p.m. in the Alemany Library Community Gallery on the Dominican University of California campus in San Rafael.
Shiva Pakdel and Afshin Shirazian are guest curators for Persian Perspective.
Mission Statement: Art has the power to communicate a better understanding of our differences and therefore create a connection. Persia (Iran), is an extraordinary land that evokes different feelings when mentioned: different for those who focus on its politics, and different for those who focus on its art, history, and culture, therefore it is largely misunderstood.
This exhibition celebrates a different side of Iran that focuses on its distinctive art and imagery from the past, present, and the Persian diaspora. The goal is to explore, present and showcase the scope and range of Persian artists and art while transcending the constraints of ideological and cultural borders.
The exhibition will be on display at Dominican through September 6 during normal library business hours.
