Images from Yemen & the Middle East - Costa Mesa, CA, 6/8/2013

0608 flier YPP On June 8, the Yemen Peace Project will be co-hosting a photography event in Costa Mesa featuring images from Yemen, Lebanon, Palestine, and elsewhere in the region. This event, a collaboration with the talented Jenny Lynn, is part of our organization's Artistic Outreach program, which uses art to promote understanding.

Alongside Jenny's outstanding work, we'll be showing stunning new photos by Alex Kay Potter, as well as images from our "Revolution in Their Eyes" collection, which was shown in DC, LA, and NYC in 2011-2012. This collection features photographs from Change Square, the heart of the 2011 popular uprising in San‘a, by AbdulRahman Jaber, Raja Althaibani, Atiaf Alwazir, Ghada al-Wazeer, and Benjamin Wiacek.

This event is free and open to the public; refreshments will be provided. We'll also be raising funds at this exhibition for our 2014 Film and Visual Arts Festival, so donations are encouraged. See you there!
