Event description

Description


Portraits: Returning to a New Home is an art gala for artists to share their personal experiences on home, escape, and immigration in order to raise funds for refugees of the Syrian Civil War. Since the start of the Syrian Civil War in 2011, over 6 million individuals have been killed or displaced. Many immigrants have come to America escaping war and oppression only to arrive in an unwelcoming land.


This gala exists not only to raise money to aid in the resettlement of refugees in America but to declare that their stories are our stories and they are welcome here. Though this may be the first time they have come to these shores, they are returning to a new home.


The event will present art pieces in a number of mediums including photographs, paintings, fashion pieces, spoken word, literary readings, and instrumental performances.During the event, guests will enjoy light appetizers, a cash bar, DJ, live performances, raffle prizes, a silent auction for select art pieces, and the opportunity to interact with the artists.
