Exhibition: Toward Greater Awareness: Darfur and American Activism

Duration: September 4, 2012 to December 4, 2012

Place: The Hofstra University Museum, Emily Lowe Gallery

This exhibition featuring American Artist Mitch Lewis is focused on the Genocide that took place in Darfur, Sudan from 2003 to about 2006 and the American response to the crisis. Lewis said in regards to his art sculptures, “These works address the physical and psychological scars left on mankind by a culture of violence and brutality. My figures possess an otherworldly aura and communicate a sense of solitude and alienation. Yet I have infused each figure with a strength and dignity that intimates a hope for the future.”

The Hofstra Museum is among the four percent of Museums nationwide to be honored with the continued accreditation by the American Association of Museums (AAM). The highest honor a museum could achieve.
