I am delighted and honored to share Duluth Mayor Emily Larson declared April 27, 2019 as Anne Labovitz Day! The proclamation is a wonderful acknowledgement of the community engagement 122 Conversations generated, the message it shared across the globe and the dedicated work to accomplish a huge publicly engaged traveling exhibition coordinating hundreds of volunteers over 6 years. Such an amazing honor and I was thrilled to be present in Duluth for this announcement and accept this with gratitude and humility because I know that it takes a village and in this case 4500 citizens from across the globe! Thank you, Mayor Larson, Duluth Sister Cities, Intl, the people of Duluth and her 5 Sister Cities!    

This past weekend was the St. Paul Art Crawl and I was excited to accept an invitation from Chris Larson and Maria Cristina Tavera to participate in Thirty Three Views Plus Two. The exhibition is a collection of artworks reflecting the vision, energy, and talent of 33 Twin Cities based women and non-binary contemporary artists. On view at the old Swedish Bank Building, as well as in four other locations across Payne Avenue, the exhibit is organized as curatorial projects of the Second Shift Studio Space and will run through May 5. Over 650 visited the exhibition this past weekend! After the Art Crawl viewing is by appointment only. Visit the website for more details. Both the Star Tribune and St. Paul Pioneer Press ran articles on this unique exhibition!

Tweed Museum of Art Acquisition 

The Tweed Museum of Art has purchased the diptych on the left, Inspired by Petrozavodsk for Japan, 2017, and will now be a part of its permanent collection. The diptych was originally created for 122 Conversations exhibition in Ohara Isumi-City Japan and inspired by the conversations from 10 citizens from the city of Petrozavodsk, Russia. Displayed alongside six other diptychs inspired by the Sister Cities of Duluth, this diptych measures approximately 35′ long!
