Art of Bangladesh
An exhibition curated by Dina Zaman
February 2, 2024 - April 30, 2024
Every participant of this exhibition has one thing in common, we are immigrants and we also share one love, the country from where we are Bangladesh. Although some of us are home makers, students, accountants or working in cyber security, we collectively came together to express our deep-rooted love for Bangladeshi rich culture through Art.
As a curator I invited immigrant women of Bangladesh to express and show Bangladeshi culture through their paintings so our community here in Columbus, Ohio can get an idea about the rich culture of the country. As an artist I helped them to create all the unique pieces of paintings. Art over in Bangladesh is very colorful and story based. Women are highly involved in arts and culture. I tried to show a little glimpse of that through this exhibition and also our diverse community here in Columbus, Ohio can welcome Bangladeshi culture as a part of Ohioan culture.
Thanks to Greater Columbus Arts Council for this amazing opportunity. Through this exhibition we are able to show our culture, our voice and feel like a part of the community.
