Afghanistan will survive its crisis; it always has. This time,if more care is provided for its children, it might be a brighter future.” ~Mustafa Vazari, M.D., Ph.D
The Muhammed Ali Center, a museum and cultural center built as a tribute to the champion boxer Muhammad Ali and his values, in Louisville, Kentucky, has booked Phil Borges‘ traveling exhibition STIRRING THE FIRE: A Global Movement to Empower Women and Girls to coincide with International Women’s Day in March 2014. We look forward to working with them for a stellar installation and coordinated community program.
Ernest H. Brooks II just visited the FRAGILE WATERS exhibition currently at the Tampa Museum of Art in the company of alumni of The Brooks Institute of Photography, who were celebrating a reunion.
“The Tampa ladies were fantastic!…..we toured….signed books…..great press…..took pictures…they provided lunch and most of all created lasting memories! As you said Barbara, the facility is magnificent and Fragile Waters was a dream come true…..they made a point of the marine life in my part, and there was a great conversation among the young viewers..” ~Ernest H.
