This month we are celebrating Reem Barakat in our volunteer spotlight! Reem is a Toledo native who is passionate about enriching the community through the arts. Reem received her degree in Fine Arts from the University of Toledo. Currently, Reem can be found spending her time with her family at their locally owned Mediterranean restaurant, Phoenicia Cuisine or working on her own art featuring themes of language, family, and culture. Reem says “The arts and culture in Toledo encourage the community to develop authentic relationships with each other.”
In the spring 2018 Reem joined the Arts Commission as an intern and has been an active volunteer at the Art Loop and The Mix. Reem says volunteering with the Arts Commission has given her a chance to witness “the way the Toledoans have enriched the community through hard work, big ideas, and a love of sharing art.”
Thank you for all you do, Reem!
