(OLLI AT UVM PRESENTS) Tour of Mohamed Hafez's UNPACKED Exhibition at the Fleming Museum of Art with Alice Boone

Mar 26, 2022
12:30 pm to 2:00 pm
Fleming Museum, 61 Colchester Avenue, Burlington

Mohamed Hafez's UNPACKED exhibition is an exploration of the question: What if, when you heard the word "refugee", you thought of a neighbor or a co-worker? Hafez has reimagined and recreated rooms, homes, buildings, and landscapes that have suffered the ravages of war. Each is embedded with the voices and stories of real people¿from Afghanistan, Congo, Syria, Iraq and Sudan¿ who have escaped those same rooms and buildings to build a new life in America. Learn more about Hafez's work and collaboration with refugees in this in-depth tour of the exhibition. Provide own transportation to the Fleming Museum, 61 Colchester Avenue, Burlington.

Price: Yes, OLLI Members: $15/Non Members: $30
