Syrian artist Etab Hreib led students, including Nancy Pruett ’18, in painting 10 panels for a theatre production of The Prophet, a play about the 2011 Egyptian uprising. Hreib first came to Davidson in 2012 and has since become a popular visitor, resource and mentor for students, faculty and the community.

With sponsorship from the Arab Studies department, theatre department, and Dean Rusk Office for International Studies, Hreib again visited the college in October 2014.

“She’s very generous with her time,” said Assistant Professor of Arab Studies Rebecca Joubin. “Each time she comes, more students hear about her visit and will ask her to participate in various activities.”
