Borders: An Artist Response to the Syrian Refugee Crisis

DAYTON — The Dayton Peace Museum is pleased to present a powerful new exhibit, “Borders”, by Yellow Springs artist Beth Holyoke. Moved by the suffering of people fleeing from the chaos of war, Holyoke has created a series of over 20 plates and plaques depicting families searching for a refuge and their yearning for a safe haven.

Beth Holyoke has been a skilled ceramist for over fifteen years. Shows of her drawings, hand papermaking, and works in clay have been held at the Dayton Visual Arts Center, Yellow Springs Arts Council and Earlham College.

“Borders” will be displayed at The Dayton International Peace Museum during the months of July - September.

Dayton Peace Museum 208 W. Monument Avenue. Open Wednesday thru Sunday, 1 p.m. 5 p.m.
