Opening Reception: Friday, 14 August from 6pm to 8pm

Home Away From Home is a multi-media project juxtaposing recorded oral histories (in English) with portraits from the SF Bay Area Palestinian community, second largest in the US. The viewer will be able to hear the voice while looking into the (photographed) face of the person telling their story.

Essentially, the project explores the question “What does it mean to be Palestinian in America?” About two dozen members of this community describe how and why they maintain ties to and aspirations for their homeland Palestine; and how they reconcile this with life in a country whose political culture is so profoundly hostile to those aspirations.

Gallery Hours:

  • Monday-Friday: 9am-5pm
  • or by appointment

The Jerusalem Fund Gallery Al-Quds is located at 2425 Virginia Ave. NW. For more information visit www.thejerusalemfund.org.
