Denison University student Sara Abou Rashed ’21 is presenting “A Map of Myself: A 60-Minute, One-Woman Revolution on War, Immigration, Language, History, Suitcases, and Everything in Between,” directed by Larry Smith. The show will be offered twice at the Columbus Museum of Art (480 East Broad Street). The shows are scheduled for 2 p.m. on Wednesday and Saturday, November 7 and 10, and both will be followed by an artist-talk back exclusively for Denisonians in attendance.
Sara is a 19-year-old artist and poet. Her family originates from Haifa, Palestine, but she was born and raised in Damascus, Syria. In 2013, she came to Ohio with her family because of the war — and that’s when she started writing her poetry in English. She won the Ohio Poetry Association High School Contest and was the Columbus District Poetry Slam Champion. Her art and poetry have won a number of awards and have appeared in several books and magazines, including “Clover,” “Common Threads,” “Voice of Youth Advocates,” “Celebrating Art,” and the “America Library of Poetry.” Sara is a recipient of the Denison Book Award and has been nominated for a Pushcart Prize.
