The AMEN Project started in response to a church burning incident in Gireif, a residential area in Khartoum, Sudan which occurred earlier this year in April. Sudanese/Amercian artist Khalid Kodi, adjunct professor of the Fine Arts Department at Boston College, initiated the project with the help of a multi-religious and multi-ethnic team of artists who are students at Boston College. The team spent Summer 2012 working on a series of large-scale, high-quality biblical paintings as part of a greater effort to rebuild the Church in Khartoum. The project is firmly rooted in universal principles of and commitment to peaceful co-existence and social justice.
