“We are passing hard days. Being together and not seeing one another have been our life protocols these days. But art has the identity of being together and in these days of distancing, we are seeking peace in art,” reads part of the letter written by the director of the commission Hojjatollah Ayyubi for the exhibit.
“We invite everybody to view calligraphy works by brilliant masters of the Persian calligraphy. They are the significant ambassadors of our culture. The exhibition by the members is only the beginning. all calligraphers, from great masters to enthusiastic young artists, are all honorary members of this seventy-year-old organization. Here is the home of all artists and people of thought, wisdom, and knowledge.” he adds.
“We will upload a part of the art of Iranian and foreign artists in other virtual exhibits for Iranian and intentional art lovers, and art will win over coronavirus and will break the distance,” the letter concludes.
The virtual exhibition will be available through the UNESCO gallery website.
