In April 2014, the U.S. Embassy and the Moroccan American Commission for Educational and Cultural Exchange (MACECE) invited Moroccan artists between the ages of 24 and 35 to submit works for permanent display at the new Embassy. The artists were asked to submit works inspired by Dr. Martin Luther King’s words, “I have a dream…” from his landmark speech at the 1963 March on Washington. Over seventy artists submitted works and eight were selected for permanent display.
Impressed by the quality of all of the submissions, the Embassy and MACECE organized a temporary exhibition of the many of the submitted works. The exhibit, at the Mohammed VI Foundation, will run from June 16-28th and is open to the public between 10am-7pm.
The art exhibit is part of an ongoing partnership between the Embassy and MACECE in the area of cultural exchange. MACECE has been facilitating academic exchanges between Morocco and the United States for over 25 years. MACECE runs several programs, the most prominent of which is the worldwide Fulbright program. Other programs administered by MACECE are undergraduate exchange, teacher training and professional development.
