Hasan Kale; a world-renowned micro artist master who can turn tiny objects into miniscule paintings. Known as “Turkey’s Microangelo”, Kale’s exquisitely detailed paintings include pumpkin seeds, coffee beans, rice grains, chickpeas and tiny discarded items such as matchsticks to bottle caps. One of İstanbul’s most famous and talented artists, Hasan Kale will be showcasing some tiny masterpieces and unique designs during this live show at the Masonic National Memorial. In addition to documentary screening and Kale’s breathtaking exhibition, the event will also include a mini-bazaar and a raffle drawing.

Kardelen Turkish Dance Ensemble is a group of dancers dedicated to promoting the culture of Turkey through dances from the region. Kardelen Dance Ensemble takes its name from a resilient Anatolian mountain flower that survives under hardship and severe weather circumstances. The group members are committed to helping underprivileged children in developing countries who survive under difficult circumstances, just like the Kardelen flower, and therefore donate a portion of revenues to organizations that are engaged in the education and health of children.
