Art is a powerful emotional tool for creating awareness and fostering a commitment to change the world, even if each print makes just a small dent. Think Uncle Sam's "I Want You For The U.S. Army," Apple's "Think Different" and the "Wonderful Copenhagen" poster with a police officer helping a mother duck across the street with her small ducklings. If you want to disseminate information quickly and engage people, thought-provoking art posters are an effective medium.
Prince Rahim and Princess Salwa were married on 31 August 2013 on the shores of Lake Geneva at the residence of late Prince Sadruddin Aga Khan in Switzerland.
