Almost 100 years ago, a young woman tried to change the world she lived in.
She did it through song, dance and negotiations. She rode her horse from the mountains of Syria down to Cairo. There were no borders then. No cement monster walls. She rode as fast as the wind with love in her heart, music in her soul and the power to change pumping through her veins. She sang about freedom, she flew like a bird.
Today, women are continuing to change the world they live in - aspiring to make it a better place. A just place. Let us fly together. Our time is now.
"The “Hoods for Heritage” project was born out of a dual desire to promote Lebanese ingenuity and support the ongoing actions of the “National Heritage Foundation” in its endeavors to safeguard Lebanon’s invaluable archeological and artistic legacy.
Sixteen renowned Lebanese artists will turn 16 Porsche 911 hoods into 16 art pieces expressing their craft-painting, architecture, design, sculpture and photography. A combination of classical and contemporary styles, innovative design concepts, harmony and refinement of forms and colors will reflect the richness of Lebanon’s culture.
These art pieces will be auctioned during the Gala Dinner of the 4th of September 2012, and the proceeds will go to support the “National Heritage Foundation Fund” projects: namely, the rehabilitation of the Lebanese National Museum."
