When people fled Somalia during the civil war that started more than 25 years ago, art was something they had to leave behind.  But the artists fled with everyone else, and those artists continued to create in their new lands.

One of those artists lives here in Minnesota – his name is Hassan Noor.  

Six years ago, the University of Wisconsin – Eau Claire started a program called Somali Cultural Immersion.  The intent is to give students a better understanding of Somali culture.  This week, Bihi welcomes three professors and two students from the program.
