We are so very proud of our Noon Libyan artists who this month participated in The Ambassadors' Exhibit at the John Natsoulas Centre for the Arts in California, United States. Mohammad Bin Lamin, Najla Shawket Fitouri, Yousef Fetis and Mohammed Albadri all took part in the exhibition to commemorate the life and achievements of the late American Ambassador Christopher J Stevens, who was killed on September 11, 2012 in Benghazi, Libya when the US Consulate was attacked.

Mohammad Bin Lamin, who was the driving force behind the Libyans' participation, made a heartfelt speech at the launch. From his notes: "The US-Libyan bond is older than the modern history that we know and it goes back to the 1800s. As we got our freedom back with the help of our Western allies, especially the United States, we are now determined more than ever to re-establish that bond and make it stronger. Ambassador Chris Steves was one of those eager to open channels [culture, arts, media, music and education]; and his social activities and travelling inside Libya made lots of Libyans clearer in understanding the Americans positively."

Held from April 4 to April 20, 2013, the event's goal is to build 'peace and cultural acceptance between the United States and the Middle East and North Africa (MENA) region' with paintings, sculptures and poetry brought from the Arabic world to an American audience. Another four Libyan artists also took part: Musbah Kabeer, Hoda Ben Musa, Jamal Shrief and Abd Assamad Mishri.

The late ambassador Stevens, who was 52 when he died, had a lifelong love and devotion to the MENA region; and, in his honour, a fund has now been set up to raise money to aid in the efforts to bring the Arab and the American worlds together. To donate:www.rememberingchrisstevens.com.
