Dr. Mukwege, director of Panzi Hospital, who was nominated for the Noble Peace Price in 2013, and won the Hillary Rodham Clinton Award for Advancing Women in Peace and Security in 2014 will be attending. Also in attendance will be foundation directors Peter Frantz and Lee Ann DeReus. 

We are proud to announce that Brookie Maxwell’s work has been commissioned by the Herbert Museum in Coventry, UK! 

The Herbert Museum is commissioning a second edition of Brookie Maxwell’s “Due Diligence”, for their permanent Peace and Reconciliation Gallery. The work will be featured in “100 Days: The Rwandan Genocide 20 Years Later”. The exhibition opens on April 7th 2014, and runs through December. 

The first edition of “Due Diligence” has been touring American museums and galleries including The Virginia Holocaust Museum at Richmond and The Florida Holocaust Museum with the Panzi Foundation exhibition since 2011. 

Due Diligence is part of Maxwell’s teaching exhibition, Rwanda Mon Amour. For information about the artist, the work, or the Panzi Foundation please email or call Gallery 138.

Here’s to Ben Affleck popping up in places randomly

The famous actor/director spoke out against violence in DRC in Washington recently, after he cofounded Eastern Congo Initiative, a nonprofit organization which works on providing aid to the people in Congo.
