Artist highlights plight of Baha'is of Iran

Shahriar Asdollah-zadeh of Auckland Baha'i community will be exhibiting his multimedia artwork on the Baha'i martyrs of Iran alongside two other national touring exhibitions.

The three concurrent exhibitions open on 14 December and go until 7 February.

The opening will be at the Whangarei Art Museum on 14 December. The exhibitions will be officially opened by prominent local Baha'i personality and tohunga whakairo Te Warihi Heteraka.

Shahriar's exhibition is well timed to coincide with International Human Rights Day on 10 December. The Office of the High Commissioner for Human Rights in Geneva has asked the public to celebrate and support Human Rights Day by advocating non-discrimination, organizing activities, raising awareness and reaching out to local communities on 10 December and throughout 2010.
