BUILDING BRIDGES: ART EXHIBITION & SALE

A 2016 project to create friendships and support resettled artists

FOUR VENUES AT BETHEL COLLEGE
AND WICHITA STATE UNIVERSITY

Wichita Common Human is a coalition of community groups and churches that organized together to  bring art created by refugees from the Middle East to galleries in the Wichita area. Our goal was to create empathy through art as an important step towards peaceful relations between the Muslim and non-Muslim worlds.

 

The work of the professional Iraqi artists was discovered by Mel Lehman, who had traveled extensively in the Middle East, originally seeking ways to ease the effect of American sanctions on the people of Iraq and later working to improve the lives of Iraqi refugees in Syria. Read more about Mel's non-profit organization, Common Humanity, here.

Building Bridges ICT was a student and community showcase featuring art by members of the WSU Muslim Student Association and a participatory bridge mural. See "Galleries."
