Unpacked: Refugee Baggage

September 4, 2018 @ 4:30 pm - 6:00 pm

Event Navigation

Join us for a reception in the newly installed exhibition Unpacked: Refugee Baggage, which tells the stories of different refugees through artist Mohamad Hafez’s miniaturized re-creations of a moment in time or memory recollected and accompanied by an audio component with the story told in their own words. Each story is unique, yet each story tells of a great sense of loss coupled with the courage and force of will it took each refugee to leave their home. Brief remarks by Hafez, who received a Bachelor of Architecture from Iowa State in 2009, and University Museums assistant curator Adrienne Gennett, will begin at 5:15 p.m. Light refreshments will be served.
