Qatar Pics: Images of a Campus Far Away

A selection of images capturing scenes at VCU Arts Qatar will be displayed on the Cabell Screen beginning Nov. 1 in honor of the annual Qatar Day, which celebrates VCU’s campus in the Middle East.
Qatar Day is an annual event at VCU that features art and design projects from the VCUarts campus in Doha, Qatar. It also features traditional aspects of Qatari and Arab culture, such as henna, Arabic calligraphy and traditional Qatari clothing.
