Wellesley’s Morgan Henderson, a senior at Noble and Greenough School in Dedham, has helped organize an exhibit, Between Worlds: Art from the South Sudanese Refugee Community, that will be highlighted at a reception on April 14 that’s free and open to the public.
“This is an important body of work as it captures the experience of the South Sudanese people from the anguish of the country’s civil war through to the hope that is coming from the vote this past January that calls for South Sudan to become a free and independent country this July,” said Henderson, who spearheaded the exhibition along with classmate Julia Weber of Weston.
Most of the paintings in this exhibit were completed by displaced young people and reflects their experiences of living between worlds that contrast war and peace. The exhibit includes 25 pieces from the Sudanese Education Fund’s permanent collection.
The reception takes place at the Arts Center at Nobles, 10 Campus Drive, Dedham, from 4-6:30 pm on April 14.
