Oklahoma Heritage Association Event

Invisible Eve Exhibit by Photographer Yousef Khanfar Opening Thursday May 30, 2013

Save the date for the opening reception of Invisible Eve on Thursday, May 30 from 5 to 8 p.m. in the Tulsa World Gallery at the Gaylord-Pickens Oklahoma Heritage Museum in Oklahoma City.

In Invisible Eve, award-winning photographer and writer, Yousef Khanfar, in his lifelong search for the essence of humanity, goes behind prison walls where women convicted of non-violent crimes are cast away and forgotten. From their cold, dark cells, he brings us powerful images and messages — not to condemn or commiserate, but to serve as bridges of understanding.

Invisible Eve features black and white portraits of women incarcerated for non-violent crimes in Oklahoma, displayed alongside their personal messages for the next generation. The evening will include a leadership and artist talk, along with a book signing with Yousef Khanfar. This exhibit was made possible by the Dr. Raniyah Ramadan Foundation.

The opening reception is open to the public. Admission is free for members and $5 for non-members. Space is limited. RSVP to Marissa Boswell at 405.523.3231 or mb@oklahomaheritage.com.
