Caravan promotes collecting your own peace building artwork by a premier Arab, Persian or Jewish artist

"Bridging Pardes" by Siona Benjamin. 60 cm x 80 cm Gouache, mixed media and 22 K gold leaf on wood panel
Caravan's "Beyond Bridges" international touring exhibition has been showcased in Paris, Cairo, London, Metz, New York, Chicago, Spokane, Portland, Wyoming, Florida and throughout the US. Now that the tour has come to a close, the public can now become an “ambassador of peace” by purchasing one of these profound artworks. In Caravan's exhibition, 21 Arab, Persian and Jewish artists of Christian, Muslim and Jewish faith backgrounds are focusing on what they hold in common through their cultures and creeds. New Jersey-based Siona Benjamin is one of the 21 artists. The painter is originally from Bombay, though now living in the US. Her work reflects her background of being brought up Jewish in a predominantly Hindu and Muslim India. [Purchase]
