Pathways of Grace would like to welcome our new Artist in Residence, Mitra Kamali

Mitra Kamali, a mother, an artist, human rights activist and a petroleum engineer, is an Iranian born American citizen who lives in Scottsdale, Arizona. Mitra’s parents sent her to United States to study abroad and to be independent at age of 17 years old.

Mitra uses her art as a means of communication, concerning social issues supporting and promoting civil discourse and justice for all. In Her recent exhibition at ASU West, Mitra talked about Persian Hero Women of the 20th century and their contribution to the world.

Mitra was awarded the title of Scholar by Arizona Humanities for her contributions to the community.

A world traveler, she observes moods, feelings and actions of her surroundings and creates her art based on her observation and understandings. She uses her art as a tool for social awareness and help with under privileged women and children.

Mitra is the artistic director for Persian Cultural Center in Scottsdale where humanity, diversity and inclusion are practiced. She has led artistic projects for elementary school students in Scottsdale and Phoenix including teaching at Boys and Girls Club.

Please give her a warm welcome to Pathways of Grace!
