Refugee Art Show - Mill Valley

Marin residents are invited to experience art by Syrian refugees at benefit show in Mill Valley, one of four stops in Bay Area for traveling exhibit

Marin residents will get a first-hand look at original art by Syrian men, women and child refugees at a one-night art show on June 1.

They will have the opportunity to purchase the art, with 100% of purchase price benefiting the refugee artist.

International grassroots organization, Love Without Borders – For Refugees In Need, will host the show and accompanying reception. The charity’s exhibits will feature artwork created by children and adult refugees who are currently living in refugee camps and housing communities in northern and central Greece.

Thousands of Syrian refugees have fled their war-torn country, with many of them landing in Greece as they await entry into Europe and reunification with family members who have already made the journey. Love Without Borders – For Refugees In Need is committed to supporting these refugees. The art exhibit will display the refugees’ artwork which highlights their hopes, dreams and individual experiences.

All works of art onsite at the Refugee Art Show will be available for purchase, with 100 percent of each sale going directly to the artist.

“We look forward to discussing the situation on the ground and admiring the artistic talents of the refugee children,” Love Without Borders Founder Kayra Martinez said. The organization focuses on providing art classes for the refugees. “The children have had a lot of trauma in their lives,” Martinez said. “It’s a great way for them to express their emotions — It gives the children something fun and different to do.”
