The art of Syrian-born, New Haven-living artist and architect Mohamad Hafez is a passionate depiction of what has become of his home country and its people. Come and hear him speak Sunday at 2 p.m. at United Church Parish House, 323 Temple St., New Haven.
Through his non-profit organization aidallsyrians, Hafez hopes to raise awareness about the issues involved in the Syrian crisis.
“Lend a hand to a refugee, give winter clothes for a child in the refugee camps.” This, he says, would be the greatest reward to him as an artist right now.
