Portland-based artist, poet, writer, performer, teacher, and activist Kifah Abdulla will demonstrate Arabic calligraphy and share the story of how he incorporates calligraphy into his own work. Originally from Iraq, Kifah lived for many years as a refugee in Jordan and Holland before becoming a U.S. citizen. This program is related to The Sea in a Jug: The Welch Collection of Islamic and Later Indian Art.
