April 24-May 19, 2024
Reception: Thursday, April 25 | 11 a.m.-1 p.m.

International artist Hamdi Attia brings his story to the Moraine Valley community. That journey has been long and hard. Some birds and animals lost their patience, while others lost their lives in the search for knowledge and for fulfilling their own curiosity. But those who lost their lives during that rather difficult journey, they did rest in peace, and they did gained eternity.
