The Miller Art Museum (MAM) will present a free exhibition talk by David Coury as part of its Second Thursday educational program. The talk, “East Meets West: Causes and Consequences of Middle Eastern Immigration,” is being presented in conjunction with the museum’s current exhibition, Mitli Mitlak (Like You, Like Me), which features work by artists from the Middle East, North Africa and of Arabic descent, many of whom are residents of occupied areas or refugee camps.
Coury – a UW-Green Bay professor of humanistic and global studies and a co-director of UW-GB’s Center for Middle East Studies and Partnerships – will speak on March 14, 6 pm, in MAM’s main gallery. The talk is free and open to the public.
“Wars, famine and climate change have contributed to this displacement, causing some of the greatest humanitarian crises of our times,” said Coury.
