Mid the Art Reach Project- Puzzles
Arab American National Museum
Each مِّــد /mid/ puzzle contains customised whimsy pieces, symbols, inspired by the hope, peace and beauty that resides in the heart of this region and its people. You will find two mystery whimsy pieces for you to enjoy that are unique to the artwork.
The idea for this project was inspired by the love for the Middle East region and the belief that the beauty of it and its people outshine both the political and economic challenges.
It is a reminder of what really counts: the wellbeing of our community and the wellbeing of our environment.
The puzzle project is just that; to reflect these values through art and with each puzzle that is sold, we give back to the community in different ways starting from promoting the artists and gallery to the world to sharing with them a percentage of the sales price to the ultimate goal of a collaborative community project which we are working on and will share once completed.
