heART of Iran Exhibit

Thanks to everyone who helped with the very successful exhibit “HeART of Iran,” which was held in the Capitol from June 18-23, 2012. “It demonstrated what we can do when we work together,” said Tata Monfared, executive director of Senses Cultural.  “Thanks again to state Sen. Sam Blakeslee and his office.”

The goal of the exhibition of nearly 50 Iranian and Iranian-American artists was to provide a deeper understanding of the unique beauty of Persian culture and to challenge stereotypes of Iranians as Islamic extremists.


“We look forward to hosting more events at the Capitol celebrating Persian culture,” added Monfared. “After all, there are large numbers of Iranians in California who want to share their cultural heritage with others.”

heART of IRAN in the State Capitol of California

The month of festivities will feature an exhibition of works by Iranian artists on the first floor of the capital between June 17th and June 23rd, 2012. The exhibit will focus on interpretations of the meaning of peace and human rights for artists in the Iranian-American community. The exhibition looks to break through stereotypes of Iranians as “extremists” or a nation of “mullahs”, established by the depictions of Iranians contained in the popular press and political cartoons. By focusing on the importance of these universal values to the multifaceted Iranian diasporas and the hundreds of thousands of Americans with Iranian heritage, the exhibit intends to educate and share the richness and diversity of the Persian culture with all Californians.
