HELEN ZUGHAIB – Stories My Father Told Me: Memories of a Childhood in Syria and Lebanon
Employing vivid color, rich pattern, stunning beauty, and admiring love, Lebanese-American artist Helen Zughaib has brought her father’s childhood stories of Syria and Lebanon in the 1930s and 40s to life. In 1981 Zughaib received a BFA from Syracuse’s University’s College of Visual and Performing Arts and has since become one of the world’s most renowned Arab American artists. Her work is in the collections of the White House, World Bank, Library of Congress, and the Arab American National Museum. We welcome Helen back to Syracuse where we will exhibit her full series of 25 gouache paintings, each illustrating a story as told by her father, Elia Zughaib.
