Alain Picard '97

R W A N D A  Reflections of Hope I invite you to view a collection of works portraying the beauty and vitality of the Rwandan people amidst the brokenness of a country ravaged by genocide. In 1994 as a result of systematic ethnic cleansing, approximately one million Rwandans were brutally slaughtered in just 100 days. Today the scars remain, yet there is hope for Rwanda. These paintings are my reflections of hope.
