Art at Wilson House: Wilson and the World
Helen Zughaib: Migrations
On View May 23 – July 28, 2019

Artist Helen Zughaib will exhibit recent work throughout the historic Wilson House. Inspired by Jacob Lawrence’s 1941 seminal Migration Series, Zughaib’s Syrian Migration Series allows for an exploration of the contemporary consequences of the post WWI peace through the lens of the current Syrian conflict and the mass migration it has triggered. This exhibition is presented to coincide with the 100th anniversary of the 1919 Paris Peace Conference.

Zughaib’s works have been exhibited widely in the US, Europe, and Lebanon and have been gifted to heads of state by President Obama and former Secretary of State, Hillary Clinton.
