Farah Pahlavi at the opening ceremony of the protest art exhibition

As we are inspired by the people’s courage and resolve, and particularly by the young women and men leading their protests. We are moved by the ideals of equality and freedom at the heart of their struggle.  And we are dedicated to supporting them by amplifying their collective voice. To show how a new generation of stands to reclaim we are honored to host an exhibition of protest-related art, drawn directly from the people’s revolutionary movement and presented by an all-female team of American designers and artists. This exhibition will show Rising: the story of an entire nation’s hope, resilience, unity, and courage in the face of an evil regime that has stolen their country but will not be allowed to steal their dreams.
