Rwandan artist and genocide survivor Jean Bosco Bakunzi will exhibit his work for the first time in the Bay Area on August 21, 7:00 p.m. to 10:00 p.m., at Progressive Grounds.

  The reception will include a brief talk at 8:15 p.m. with Bakunzi about his life and work as part of a new generation of Rwandan visual artists who are healing the wounds of a country rebuilding from civil war.

Sales of his uplifting and colorful paintings will benefit the Uburanga Arts Studio’s work to connect people across cultural divides, nurture the creativity of youth, and inspire hope for a bright future for Rwanda.
