The exhibit originated in Bethlehem with a juried call for artists living in Palestine, Jerusalem, and Gaza. It is part of a cultural initiative to bring art, culture and education to Christians and Muslims.

A public reception to view the artwork will be held from 5 to 8 p.m. Friday, June 28. In addition to refreshments and music, a representative from the Bright Stars of Bethlehem will be present to share information about the organization. Hosts will also be present during the open house from 1 to 4 p.m. Saturday, June 29 and Sunday, June 30.

Bright Stars of Bethlehem is a U.S. charitable organization that promotes and spreads the word about the many outreach ministries of the Christmas Lutheran Church in Bethlehem and the Diyar Consortium. The Diyar Consortium, a group of Lutheran-based, ecumenically-oriented institutions, offers programs which serve the whole Palestinian community with emphasis on children, youth, women and elders. Its mission is to build hope and a brighter future for the people of Palestine. All art work is for sale and the proceeds go directly to the artist.
