September News Flash

Hello! Hard to believe that summer is coming to its unofficial close this Labor Day weekend. September is suddenly here and with it brings the final exhibition for 122 Conversations. The past 6 years of planning, creating art and traveling this unique cross-cultural project has been absolutely amazing! I have forged new friendships across the globe and continue to be grateful for all those that volunteered their time and energy in each of the 6 cities.

The past few newsletters I have tried to thank the various individuals and groups involved with 122. This month I am so excited and grateful to share and acknowledge the three professionals that are contributing essays to the official catalog: Darsie Alexander, Susan and Elihu Rose Chief Curator at the Jewish Museum,  Jack Becker,  Forecast Public Art founder and currently director of Forecast’s Consulting and Creative Services program and Omayra Alvarado, Executive Director at Instituto de Visión in Bogata, Colombia. I am proud and honored to have all three writing for the catalog! Thank you! Each one of these three essayists have written an exceptional piece offering their unique and professional perspectives to be published in the catalog. In order to incorporate the engagement pieces from Duluth, the catalog publish date will coincide with the official public opening October 25. Look for it at the Tweed!

Traveling to Duluth to visit the final exhibition will be the Swedish Sister City delegation from Växjö, Sweden! I am excited to greet them and look forward to reconnecting with those friends I met while in Växjö March of 2017.
