Mehmedinovic came with Hadzic to the United States in 1996, where'd he go on to graduate from UCLA and attend the American Film Institute. Mehmedinovic said one of the first photographs he ever took was with Hadzic's camera.

"Just by chance, [Holland] found them and grouped us all together," he said. "There's some kind of higher voice at work. There was something else to bring us together. I can't believe it is by chance."

Other artists in the show include Bojan Bahic, Lejla Hodzic, Ajla Durbuzovic, Amila Hrustic, Numan Huseinbegovic, Mia Hebib, Amila Hodzic, Milan Senic, Endi Poskovic, Nebojsa "Shoba" Seric, Irfan Redzovic, Ina Soltani, Sabina Vajraca, Vanja Lisac, Aida Sehovic and items made by OshYosh, Kao Pao Shu and Rukotvorine.

About one-third of the show's proceeds are going to the Bosana Foundation, whose efforts to support Bosnian youth includes providing university scholarships and tutoring at orphanages.

The Green Cube Gallery is at 264 Forest Ave. For more information, call (949) 494-1550.
