Event Details

The Art of Atila Ozer will open February 11th with a reception featuring Deniz Cil on the 16th at 7pm. Cil is managing editor of the Journal of Conflict Resolution and the niece of Atila Ozer and will speak on behalf of the late Atila Ozer.

Ozer was a top international cartoonist who spent his life creating intriguing, meaningful cartoon art, while also educating others on the craft. Ozer’s illustrations commented on world peace through the symbolic iconography of cartoons and depicted the medium’s powerful language. His research, presentations, and articles emphasized cartoon art’s place in international culture as a means of communication. As a member of the Turkish Cartoonists Association (FECO) since 1975, Ozer certainly helped put Turkey on the map as a force in the cartoon art community.

 

The exhibition which runs through April, is supported in part by The American Middle East Institute.

 The American Middle East Institute is an independent, non-profit organization headquartered in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, that is focused on building business, educational and cultural ties between the United States and the countries of the Middle East. We believe these kinds of connections represent a powerful form of diplomacy and bridge-building. For more information, visit www.AmericanMEI.org.
