The 6th Annual Summer Art Show reception and art discussion was held Sunday, August 4, 2019 at the Headquarters Library. Artist Ameena Khan led an informative discussion about her "Just a Peek, Please" art collection featuring sentiments and stories about Muslim women living in America.
"I believe that art can transcend the boundaries of culture, language, and beliefs to touch hearts and transform communities," Khan said. "The very best art challenges our most deeply held convictions and gives us the opportunity to grow. This principle is the driving force for my work.”
Over 60 people attended the reception to view the works of Khan and other local artists who submitted their works. The art will be on display throughout the month of August on the library's third floor at the entrance of the Teen Space. Please stop by to enjoy these creative pieces, and be inspired!
