Oct. 6: Opening reception for Land of the Free


Land of the Free
October 5 to December 3, 2017
Free Opening Reception Friday, October 6 at 7 PM

Join us for a free reception on Friday, October 6 at 7 PM  to celebrate the opening of Land of the Free. This exhibition in the front room of The City Reliquary captures the daily life of artist Moeinedin Shashaei, a newly immigrated Iranian US resident facing the absurdity of vilification.

The show presents Shashaei’s 90 photographs taken in the 90 days immediately following the signing of Executive Order 13769, entitled, “Protecting the Nation from Foreign Terrorist Entry to the United States” and commonly referred to as the “travel ban.” It stands as an homage to all the memories forged by the artist in a city that he loves dearly.

Complimentary light refreshments. Wine and mixed drinks by suggested donation.
