By the Olive Trees Gallery Opening

Professor Charles Peer:
Well, we hope everybody will come to see the exhibit By the Olive Trees, the photojournalist work by Ben Rasmussen. It's an amazing collection of photos that really touch on the struggle of the Syrian refugees. Over the last five years, 4.7 million people have been displaced and oftentimes we just forget the personal toll that such an event takes. So, I hope everybody will come, read the stories, look at the photographs, and take in a little bit of this story that we often are so desensitized to. It's a great exhibit.
