'Al Mutanabbi Street Starts Here' exhibit July-Oct. 2014

'Al Mutanabbi Street Starts Here' exhibit July-Oct. 2014

Goddard Videos

The Eliot D. Pratt Library is pleased to present this traveling exhibit in conjunction with Goddard's Master of Fine Arts in Interdisciplinary Arts (MFAIA) program.

The impetus for creating this traveling exhibit of book art and poetry was a 2007 car bomb explosion on Al-Mutanabbi Street in the cultural and historic book- selling district of Baghdad, Iraq. The bombing was a deliberate attack on the literary and intellectual life of Baghdad, killing over 30 people, wounding more than a hundred.

'Al-Mutanabbi Street Starts Here' inspires us to take responsible action in the world, in our nation, and in our local communities.

The exhibit will be on display in the Pratt Gallery through October 210th, 2014. Join us for the Closing Reception on October 5, 2014, 10am to Noon, with a poetry reading by Peter Money, a Gamelan performance, and more.
