Kenya & Tanzania IN FOCUS
In the MCNY Manhattan Campus Art Gallery Floors 6 & 7
The Opening Reception is September 12th and Kenya & Tanzania IN FOCUS will be on exhibition through December 19, 2018.
Artists Statement: Our project celebrates the cultural differences between various tribal and urban people in Kenya and Tanzania. In addition, we were able to capture the beautiful creatures that inhabit the grasslands and forests of those two countries. It is so important to preserve both the cultures and ecosystems that exist there. It is our hope that this exhibit inspires people to advocate for these objectives.
