The Persian Cultural Center (PCC) is slated to mount an exhibition of works by a group of US-based Iranian artists in Escondido, California.
Fresh Air will display paintings, photos, sculptures and other artworks created by Iranians living in the United States.
Organized in collaboration with Mehr International Cultural Center (M. Gallery), the exhibition will run from August 17 to 26, 2012.
Iranian-Americans are among the most highly educated communities of the United States, who have excelled in economy, science, arts and media.
The Persian Cultural Center was founded 23 years ago in an attempt to provide an enriching and welcoming environment for all who seek to strengthen the bonds of community, culture and cross-cultural understanding.
The center is affiliated with entities such as the Iranian School of San Diego (ISSD) and the PCC Foundation which raises funds for humanitarian causes.
It also publishes Peyk, a bilingual, bimonthly magazine published with an approximate circulation of 6000.
Mehr International Cultural Center (MICC) mainly focuses on introducing the culture, art and artists of the different countries to the world, to bring more harmony and create a better understanding among nations and their people.
