The Palestine Unlimited Photo Exhibit showcases works by ten artists who employ a diverse approach in storytelling to create expressions about society and life in current day Palestine. The exhibit brings together the works of artists from Gaza, historical Palestine, Jerusalem and the West Bank. Working with themes of space, time, feminism, materialism, and questioning notions of the local and the personal, the artists take us on a journey into the various realms and realities in Palestine today.

The ten artists were finalists in the Karimeh Abboud Award Competition, a signature initiative of Dar Al Kalima University College of Arts and Culture in Bethlehem. The school and its founder, Rev. Dr. Mitri Raheb, are longtime mission partners with the PC(USA) Presbyterian Mission Agency. Rev. Raheb is part of the Palestinian Christian community, who are descendants from the first Christians of 2000 years ago.

The photo exhibit will remain in place in Fellowship Hall through Sunday, April 29.
