This new art exhibit wants to change the way you think about the Syrian refugee crisis
Syrians have been fleeing war for the better part of eight years — and their plight barely registers on the news anymore.
But the slow-motion train wreck that is the Syria conflict is still happening.
In Washington, DC, renowned Arab-American artist Helen Zughaib, whose work has been presented to foreign heads of state by former President Barack Obama and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, is trying to draw attention to Syrians’ struggle.
Her new art exhibit, the Syrian Migration Series, tells a compelling story of protests, rebellion, and civil war, the events that led millions of people to flee Syria for a safer harbor.
