Night of Fire by Mohammed al-Hamadany

I'm not sure how I found out about this exhibit. I think I picked up a postcard last week at the Society of Illustrators. I'm glad I did. This is a small fragment from a brilliant installation of 25 paintings currently on exhibit (along with other work by contemporary Iraqi artists) at the Pomegranate Gallery @ 133 Greene Street through June 21st. Titled NIGHT Of FIRE, it is a depiction of scenes throughout Baghdad during the first night of the American Shock and Awe campaign.
