December News Flash 

Warm greetings! Hard to believe we are in the final month of 2018! The past few months have really flown by with the preparation and opening of the Duluth 122 Conversations exhibition. Once opened, events surrounding the exhibition have kept me on my toes as well! This past month, I gave an artist talk attended by over 70 people, the Tweed has reported record number of visits and the engagement pieces are being enjoyed by many. Hundreds of tiles are now shared on the wall and I currently have enough for 10 artist books! Thank you to all who have joined in the conversation sharing your hopes and dreams. I am so inspired by all of the beautiful tiles!
In addition to the artist talk, Alison Aune and I facilitated a large student group at the Tweed this past week. Sixty students participated in an encore presentation of Love Notes from the October opening event. Clad in Generosity Aprons, the students offered tiles from the aprons as love notes, encouraging dialogue surrounding connection and cross cultural acceptance among their peers. Looking ahead to the holidays and in anticipation of gift giving, the PEACE necklace designed by me in collaboration with Security Jewelers is a wonderful, meaningful gift for the season. Such a simple and beautiful way to spread thoughts of peace. The remaining necklaces are available through the Tweed museum store. Email me anne@labovitz.com or come to Pop-Up Studio this weekend! (see below)

I Love You Wall
Peeking out from behind the art education students from U of MN, Duluth is the I Love You wall. Measuring 7 feet tall and 22 feet wide, the wall is a collage of the faces of 122 Conversations. Photographs of the 3500+ volunteers from 6 countries are lovingly displayed on this wall.
So Many Choices!

And that is a good thing! Seen at right is one of the artist books created from Choices tiles. Each tile has a story to share provided by a 122 Conversations participant. They are touching, funny, sometimes beautifully raw and full of hope for peace.
