Al Aqaba Village, Palestine
Al Aqaba is a small West Bank village located in the Jordan Valley. The village is at a watershed moment under the constant threat of being demolished.
In 2015, Lily Yeh designed the mural entitled, Once Upon A Time, There Was The Land of Palestine, honoring the people’s deep emotion of trauma and loss. Rob Shetterly painted the figures of two children, a boy and a girl, at the suggestion of Haj Sami Sadiq, the Mayor of Al Aqaba, as the symbol of their future.
