about the forbidden art exhibit

Exhibit Overview

The Forbidden Art Exhibit • September 17th, 2019 • The Historic Reynolda Barn • Winston Salem, NC • 7:00-9:00 PM • Cocktail Attire • Wine & Hors D’Oeuvres • Raising money for art therapy and orphan work in Iraq

The Story

When ISIS controlled Mosul creating art was forbidden. To create and be caught meant torture and death. However, despite the high costs artists kept drawing, sculpting and painting their stories.

We believe these stories are important. Therefore, Restore Iraq has curated The Forbidden Art Exhibit starring 14 one-of-a-kind pieces. We have hand-carried each piece from Mosul, Iraq to share with Winston Salem on September 17th, 2019.  You are invited to come enjoy this array of pieces from 8 artists across 4 mediums. Finally, during our live auction you’ll have the chance to take home one of these unique items as we raise money for our orphan work in Mosul, Iraq.

If you’re out of state, you can still partake in The Forbidden Art Exhibit and Auction — a charity fundraiser for Restore Iraq’s orphan care! First, purchase your remote ticket below. We’ll send you an art brochure before the event so you can decide which pieces you will bid on. Then, we’ll have a volunteer at the event in your place who will call you when bidding starts. Lastly, you tell them when to place a bid and for how much! They’ll stay on the phone with you so you get real time updates, and if you win we’ll ship the art to you! Battle with other bidders in the room right from your couch, office or favored coffee shop, all for a great cause. You must purchase remote tickets by September 10th, 2019. There are only a handful, so don’t wait!
