Over 15 Syrian artists emerge in a group show in an artistic tale about the current revolution.
From war-torn Syria, after nearly two years of extreme violence, armed conflict and massive physical and human destruction, Syrian artists are expressing their desire and courage for freedom through peaceful artistic mediums. Building on Syria’s deep historical art and cultural traditions, Syrian artists have been exploring a wide range of mediums to convey their experiences and emotions, interpreting the events around them in personal styles and communicating bold dissent.
These courageous risk-takers represent the future of Syria--a Syria where the young generations are using creative powers to promote peace and freedom for their people and passionately engage and inspire others toward the rebuilding of a new Syrian nation.
Syria Artvolution: Expressions of Freedom exhibits a captivating multimedia show of acclaimed Syrian artists and muscians. These poignant works forward insight into the Syrian experience, telling a visual tale of a peoples’ desire for dignity, freedom and peace.
The exhibition is curated and produced by Honey Al Sayed and Amanda M. Williams-Vasquez, and will be accompanied by artist talks, workshops,and musical performances. Proceeds raised at the events will be donated to the FREE-Syria Foundation and RO'YA for a Better Syria, for humanitarian aid and social development.
Syria Artvolution is presented in collaboration with the Mohammed Said Farsi Chair of Islamic Peace.
The exhibition will be curated and produced by Honey Al Sayed and Amanda Williams, and is planned as a week-long event in Washington, DC in June 2013.

The main challenge for completing this project is the funding portion to support the artist talks, workshops, seminars and musical performances, beyond the fabrication, shipping, and printing needs. We want to make this exhibition more than art show, but an educational experience and historical statement.
Our curatorial team comes from a solid arts and media background and we are solely committed to utilizing our resources to make this project a success for the artists and people of Syria.
