DESCRIPTION

"60 Years:" Six artists, three Jewish/Israeli and three Palestinian: Granite Amit, Rajie Cook, John Halaka, Jenny Polak, Jan Tichy, Mary Tuma.

May 15th marks sixty years since the establishment of the state of Israel and the resulting Palestinian Nakba. 60 Years examines these events, along with the devastating effects of the continuing Occupation on the Palestinian people, and its impact on Israeli moral identity. This exhibition is a call to the American public for deeper awareness and open dialogue about the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. It supports all the organizations and individuals working towards a just, dignified peace and humane coexistence.
