Stamps of Hope: Syrian Refugee Artists Traveling Exhibit celebrates the hope of a war-torn people who have left their home to try to create a better life for themselves and their families. This community of artists is struggling to make a living in a country where they have no security or citizenship. They have been living for years in the Zaa’tari Refugee Camp in Syria’s neighboring country, Jordan.

STLCC-Wildwood invites you to view the traveling art exhibit and learn more about the artists during a gallery talk with Rihab Sawah, organizer and assistant professor of physics at Lincoln Land Community College.

Stamps of Hope is sponsored by the Midwest Institute for International and Intercultural Education (MIIIE). All the artwork is for sale to benefit the Syrian refugee artists.

The gallery talk at STLCC-Wildwood is scheduled for Feb. 24 at 9 a.m. The artwork will be on exhibit at the campus from Feb. 18 through March 16. For questions regarding this event at STLCC-Wildwood, please contact Anthony Clark, Ph.D., professor of economics, at aclark162@stlcc.edu
