Dublin Arts Council will present Urur Dhex-Dhexaad Ah/Community In-Between, a photography exhibition featuring portraits of 15 central Ohio Somali trailblazers created by two female Somali high school student photographers and accompanied by written and video personal narratives, artifacts, and oral histories delivered by augmented reality. The exhibition opens with a free reception on Tuesday, Aug. 8 from 6 — 8 p.m. The exhibition will be on view at Dublin Arts Council, 7125 Riverside Dr., in Dublin, Ohio Aug. 8 – Nov. 3, 2017.

Dublin Arts Council is presenting Urur Dhex-Dhexaad Ah, which translates to “Community in Between” from Somali, in collaboration with guest preparators Ruth Smith and Qorsho Hassan. Additional support is provided the Martha Holden Jennings Foundation and by state tax dollars allocated by the Ohio Legislature to the Ohio Arts Council (OAC). The OAC is a state agency that funds and supports quality arts experiences to strengthen Ohio communities culturally, educationally and economically.
