All Day Artists In Motion: Illustrations of Perilous Journeys (Multi-Day Event)

September 7
5pm Exhibition and Discussion with
Project Founder Angela Wells reception to follow


Exhibit on View: June 1- September 7

Between two mountain ranges in Northern Eritrea, dozens of young Eritrean Refugees spend their days making paintings that tell the stories of their experiences. In their artworks they are able to express their longing for lost loved ones, traumatic memories of persecution, and stories of their families and friends who have taken perilous journeys. Mebratu, their 45 year-old teacher, provokes them to make art that inspires social change.

“Painting keeps history alive, transmits information from one generation to another and express ideas and feelings. These paintings raise awareness and can prevent others from tragedy. There is nothing better than creating conversation.”

Artists In Motion is an initiative of The Jesuit Refugee Service (JRS), an international Catholic organization with a mission to accompany, serve and advocate on behalf of refugees and other forcibly displaced persons. In 50 countries, JRS programs provide assistance to refugees in camps and cities, individuals displaced within their own countries, and those held in detention centers. In Northern Ethiopia, JRS provides Eritrean refugee youth with opportunities to learn and express themselves by providing a library, sports facility, and classes in painting, dance, music and drama. The Artists in Motion Painters are students of the JRS fine arts course.
