Empowering Artists

The Aftab Committee is the result of a pioneer effort made in Washington DC to promote renowned and emerging Iranian-American artists and Iranian art. With an excellent track record so far, the Aftab Committee achieved its goal to place up high the work of Iranian-American artists with innovative aesthetic proposals. Now transformed in a versatile project, the Aftab Committee empowers Iranian-American artists from all mediums. Going further and wider with a more direct approach to artists and art lovers, the Aftab Committee devotes itself to empowering Iranian-American artists to increase understanding, appreciation, and exposure of their art. Our existence is made possible by donations from supporters like you. Please consider making a tax-deductible donation today.
