Opening of the Jabra Ibrahim Jabra Painting Exhibition

our sincere thanks to Mr. George Al Ama, BU, ‘04


On the 7th of October, Monday, on the occasion of the University’s Jubilee of 40 years, the opening of the painting and pictorial history exhibition took place. The exhibition showcased paintings of Jabra Ibrahim Jabra. A pictorial history featuring the University from its pioneering years and through the 40 years was also on display.

The opening of the exhibition was graced by Her Honor, Mayor Vera Baboun, Brother Peter Bray, Vice Chancellor, Dr. Irene Hazou, Vice President for Academic Affairs, the Executive Council members, the PALICO member-librarians and other faculty members and guests.

George Al Ama (BU’04), a Bethlehemite, generously loaned out Jabra’s five paintings from the family collection to be on display at the Turathuna Centre. The Library Team is grateful for this generous gesture which came on the same day when Palestine celebrates “National Heritage Day.”
