Art is often used during times of conflict to express emotions and react to what is happening in the world. The new University Art Gallery exhibition, “Mitli Mitlak - Like You, Like Me” is doing just that.

The “Mitli Mitlak - Like You, Like Me” exhibition delves into the United States’ current treatment of refugees to demonstrate how we are more alike than different. It features reflective works from 13 contemporary international Islamic artists from 10 Middle Eastern countries and is organized by Mediterranean Fire Art Foundation and curated by Habibah Sheikh.

The opening reception will be held from 4 to 6 p.m. Jan. 17 in the University Art Gallery. It will include a performance art piece at 5 p.m. by Sheikh, generated from her work with Lebanese and Syrian refugees.

The exhibition is free and runs at CMU’s University Art Gallery from Jan. 11 through Feb. 9.
