From the Boston Globe’s “Using art to preserve an endangered language”:

"How do you preserve a language that’s in danger of being forgotten? Turn it into art.
The Sherman Gallery at Boston University is currently running an exhibition of works by Moroccan artist Hamid Kachmar, who for twenty years has been using his paintings to help keep alive an embattled, indigenous language. Tifinagh is the ancient script of the Berbers, a minority ethnic group in Morocco to which Kachmar belongs. Tifinagh has been suppressed historically in Morocco, but Kachmar makes the script’s intricate symbols the main element of his colorful art.”
