WAR-TOYS: Israel, West Bank, and Gaza Strip

Gallery 210 is pleased to present WAR-TOYS: Israel, West Bank, and Gaza Strip January 25, 2020. The exhibition opens on January 25th and runs through March 14, 2020.

Children often share their experiences and emotions through indirect methods of communication, such as art and play. As a result, their personal accounts of war frequently go unseen and unheard by the international community. In WAR-TOYS: Israel, West Bank, and Gaza Strip, Brian McCarty’s an internationally exhibited artist and toy industry veteran, whose photographic works interpret children’s therapeutic drawings and offer a rare yet fascinating insight into the contemporary experiences of Palestinian and Israeli boys and girls. WAR-TOYS is a striking portrait of war from the eyes of the innocent.

WAR-TOYS: Israel, West Bank, and Gaza Strip was organized by Tinca Art, Inc., and Exhibits USA/Mid-America Arts Alliance.
