Huong. Art for Peace's Sake

From Dec 1st through Dec 20th, 2007.

Huong. Miami ArtistsJust around the bend, two blocks walking south from Art Basel, the "art-biography"  the Vietnamese artist Huong is on exhibit from December 1st, 2007. This 600 foot mural connects the concepts of war, peace, refugees, justice, torture, and displacement through the eyes of the survivor whose determination to pass the peace forward is purged and painted on canvas.

Her Peace Opus is the culmination of thirty years of searing memories that brings history to life and depicts the universal pain of war.  This spectacular and timely exhibit is both evocative and provocative and carries the power to echo for years to come. The artist, Huong is a former journalist, a mother, a Vietnam War refugee and a fervent peace activist.  A 25-year-old Huong fled Vietnam in 1975 at the end of the war, escaping to America.  Huong then launched an art career that caught attention of art audiences and critics internationally.
