Mesopotamians are the remaining Christian minorities (also known as the Assyrian, Chaldean and Syriac) in the region. Through out the history, they were forced to leave their land and migrate to various regions around the world, due to horrors of Ethnic-cleansing massacres and wars, in search of democracy and freedom.

Mesopotamian artists representing their passion for freedom, peace, beauty of nature and different aspects from the region through a variety of cultural subjects and mediums, believe that the whole world is a mixture of colors that forms a harmony with love and peace which should be preserved for all humanity.

The event is sponsored by Assyrian Aid Society of America which is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, dedicated to helping people with their basic needs such as food, shelter, healthcare in the Ninveh region. This event is to promote Mesopotamian Art, culture and values. All proceeds are dedicated for building schools, promoting education
