'Reflections: Contemporary Arab American Art,' is on display at Henry Ford Community College until Friday, Mar. 6 in the Sisson Art Gallery, located in HFCC’s MacKenzie Fine Arts Center on HFCC’s main campus at 5101 Evergreen Rd. in Dearborn.

The exhibit includes recent works by Arab American artists that reflect on the diversity of Arab and Middle Eastern cultures and includes work from artists such as Sari Khoury, Mamoun Sakkal, Abdulhussein Twaij, Imad Hassan, May Hariri Aboutaam and Joseph Namey, according to HFCC art history instructor Dr. Hashim Al-Tawil, who also is displaying artwork in the exhibit.

'The show is a tribute, celebration and acknowledgment of the richness of these diverse cultures and their contribution to the wider picture of modern American visual art,' notes Al-Tawil, a resident of Farmington Hills.
