heART of Iran Exhibitposted on 01 Feb 2013 | post

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.”
