When the Arab American National Museum (AANM) opened its doors 10 years ago, its inaugural exhibition In/Visible presented the works of Arab American artists addressing concepts of identity and place. We are now pleased to bring this ongoing conversation between art and Arab identity to southern California with Close to Home: Celebrating California’s Arab American Art as part of the Museum’s 10th Anniversary Year.
Presented in collaboration with the Lebanese American Foundation – House of Lebanon, this exhibition is the latest in a series of cultural programs the AANM has sponsored in southern California with the Southern California Friends of the AANM.
This collaboration to promote the art of talented Arab Americans based in southern California – John Halaka, Doris Bittar, andOlfet Agrama – is another opportunity to shine a spotlight on the many contributions of our community.
Showcasing an artist’s insight into Arab American identity is a powerful gateway in opening up people’s minds to the larger Arab American culture. Your support of Close to Home will allow the Museum to continue to be a significant venue and collaborator for the presentation of notable Arab American artists. More importantly, it will ensure that the works of these artists are preserved and shared.
Join the Southern California Friends of the Arab American National Museum in supporting this exhibition. Several levels of sponsorships are available.
