The Heritage of Afghanistan Exhibit was located in the student study area in front of the Biella Room. It comprised a single case, a 36" x 90" free-standing poster, as well as explanatory text mounted on the adjacent wall.


Printed materials and artifacts in the display case were drawn from producer Graham's extensive personal collection of art-related teaching materials.

Exhibit Backstory

Image of Lanier Graham

This cultural exhibit was designed by Lanier Graham, former director of the CSUEB Art Gallery. The occasion of its creation was spurred by the impending visit by a delegation of officials of the Afghan government to the CSUEB campus in Spring Quarter 2011.

Drawing upon his extensive knowledge of a wide variety of cultures and traditions, Graham supplied the images and text that we used for this display.
