The Gazala Projects studio, located at 101 East Main Street in Gettysburg, Ohio, is an arts and culture space with a curatorial focus on contemporary Palestinian American artists and other artists of color. This studio is the brick-and-mortar manifestation of PARC (Postcolonial Art and Research Center), which has been an ongoing part of Mona Gazala's artistic practice.
The studio space will feature rotating solo exhibitions, curated group exhibitions, traveling art projects from guest curators, and archival PARC exhibits. The building also houses a curated selection of new and used books.
