Join us for a reception in the newly installed exhibition "Unpacked: Refugee Baggage" currently on view in the Christian Petersen Art Museum. Brief remarks by the artist, who received a BArch in Architecture from ISU in 2009, and University Museums Assistant Curator Adrienne Gennett will begin at 5:15 pm. Light refreshments.

The exhibition tells the stories of different refugees through artist Mohamad Hafez's miniaturized recreations 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.

The exhibition "Unpacked: Refugee Baggage" is in the Christian Petersen Art Museum, Morrill Hall, September 4-October 19.
