Apologies for this, but I forgot to mention this one important thing:
My good friends at Booklyn, Inc. are holding an exhibition of collaborative works on paper titled FRIENDS, PEACE, AND SANCTUARY, which is the result of a project at Swarthmore College in which American and Egyptian artists collaborated with members of the Syrian and Iraqi refugee communities of Philadelphia. I saw some of the results myself at the Booklyn Artist-Book Fair earlier this year, and they were, hands down, the show stopper. Very powerful and very beautiful stuff. Here are the deets:
When: September 27 through October 26th, 2019
Where: Booklyn, Inc., Brooklyn Army Terminal, 140 58th St., Building B, Area 7G, Brooklyn, NY 11220
(For detailed directions visit: http://booklyn.org/info/visit/)

My apologies again for the fluke. Carry on,
