Art Made Easy Project, with Artist Nabil Makar April 30. In front of the Art (AR) Building, at MC-Rockville.

In celebration of Arab American Heritage Month at Montgomery College, please join us on Monday, April 30 at 12 noon in front of the Art (AR) Building, Rockville campus for Art Made Easy Project: "I'm Egyptian and I live in the United States" with Artist Nabil Makar.


About the Artist:
Nabil Makar, an Egyptian artist who has lived in the US for nearly 40 years, has long been a proponent of cross-cultural dialogue. "Everybody must do his part in the world. Artists cannot carry guns or be doctors, but they can express themselves with their brushes and pencils. There must be mutual understanding." Although he grew up in Egypt, Makar has spent most of his life in the US and only recently started to visit to his home country every year. Makar's whole career has centered on the idea of Egyptian-American cultural exchange. For more information about his work and, please visit the link: http://www.makariangallery.com/Home/biography.html


The final art project with Nabil Makar involves a tour. The College and community members are encouraged to participate. Art background is not required.

The event is free and open to the public. Join us and share this information with your students and the community.
