Art Installation by Sahar Qawasmi ’08 Featured in New York Times
Work by Sahar Qawasmi (’08) was featured in the International Herald Tribune, the Global Edition of the New York Times.
The Article, From Nablus to Jerusalem, by Raja Shehadeh, describes the writer’s feelings upon viewing the exhibit, “Palestine Connected” by the Palestinian artists Sahar Qawasmi (’08) and Iyad Issa. The exhibit marked the centenary of the opening of the former Nablus central train station, as part of “Cities Exhibition” by the Birzeit University Museum, the third edition of an annual show that allows artists to explore the social history of Palestinian cities. The exhibit was set in the pickle factory that now stands where the Nablus central station once was.
