Spanish artists sympathize with Moroccan terror victims
The building of the Cupola at the park of the Arab League of Casablanca will host from May 13 to 16, an exhibition of paintings and sculptures of Spanish artists, wishing to express their solidarity with the victims of the May 16 terrorist attack in Morocco.
The Spanish gesture comes following a similar gesture from the Moroccan side following the deadly terrorist attacks in Madrid on March 11, 2004. A short while after the train attacks in the Spanish capital a group of 12 Moroccan intellectuals, artists and journalists set of to Madrid (on July) with 191 cubes of painting carried out by students of art schools in Morocco, in support of the people of Spain. The cubes were presented at the Atosha station in Madrid, where the terrorist attacks claimed the lives of over 200 people.
"The two disasters brought the two people closer," reported the <i>Aujourd'hui</i> newspaper.
