Or..Emergence II in English.

As I’ve written before, this piece was selected by the US State Department’s Art in Embassies progam to hang in Tirana, Albania. What an honor! I forgot that they also publish a small beautiful booklet for each exhibit and I got my copies yesterday complete with English/Albanian translation. A bonus was the cover image by amazing fiber artist and painter Deidre Adams.

Heading to Albania!

January 17, 2015

Well, not me exactly.

But I’m honored that this creation of mine has been selected by the US State Department’s Art in Embassies program to hang in the US Embassy in Albania for the next two years!

Several years back I had two pieces selected to hang in the embassy in East Timor (yes, I had to look at a map for that one). The Art in Embassies program is one of the better uses of our tax dollars-in my opinion. What a wonderful idea to feature American artwork in our embassies to create cultural connections with folks around the world. I’m so happy to be a part of it.

My art returns from Dili, East Timor

June 15, 2010

Two years ago, I heard about  a program run by the US State Department that selects American art to be hung in US embassies around the world. How cool is that? So I sent in a submission of my work to the curators and was thrilled to be quickly contacted and invited to have my work hung in the Ambassadors residence in Dili, East Timor. Of course, after the first whoop I had to look on a map to find where the heck Dili, East Timor was (it’s near Indonesia). These are the pieces that went on this exotic trip:

This program also produces a beautiful full color catalog  documenting the artwork selected for each location. It’s then offered to embassy visitors.

The Ambassador has returned to the US so my work was delivered home this morning.  What a wonderful use of tax dollars! Spread art!
