What could be better than to have an exciting Touring Museum bring its original artwork to your town under the leadership of an acclaimed artist such as Suheil Baqaeen. He can make color, lines and shapes come alive and be more fun than you can imagine. Kudos to our dear colleagues, Dr. Khalid Khreis, Mr. Khalil al-Majal and Suheil on this very successful outreach project! Read more about it in the New York Times here....

April is Month of The Military Child
Posted by 01 April 2013
Each year at this time our nation recognizes the contributions that military children make as their parent or parents serve in the U.S. Army, Marine Corps, Navy, Air Force, or Coast Guard.

They live with the challenges of parental deployments, and a host of life transitions that include reintegration and, for many, the return of a profoundly changed parent.
