KUWAIT, Oct 9 (KUNA) -- The American University of Kuwait (AUK) opened
Sunday an art exhibition for internationally recognized self-taught painter
Matt Lamb with the event aimed at promoting world peace and co-existence
Organizers from the Matt Lamb Organization told KUNA that the exhibition
would feature 60 pieces of art-work done by the American artist, adding that
the Matt Lamb Umbrellas for Peace project would accompany the exhibitions as
an effort to promote peace worldwide.
The project began after the 9/11 attacks to help children affected by
hardship and encourage the world community to spread understanding and peace
AUK's President Dr. Winfred Thompson said that the exhibition, which would
conclude on October 13th, would put art and peace in one mold and promote such
notions through world societies.

noble purpose. (end)
