Suffolk Sister Cities International Exhibit: "The Art of Diplomacy"

Tuesday, April 10, 2018

Sister Cities International aims to promote peace through mutual respect, understanding, and cooperation – one individual, one community at a time. Each year, the Young Artists and Authors Showcase encourages youth from around the globe to express the mission of Sister Cities International through original artwork and literature. This year’s theme, "The Art of Diplomacy," highlights the importance of citizen diplomacy and the innovative ways citizen diplomats achieve peace through people-to-people interaction. Students are encouraged to draw inspiration from their experiences with sister cities, travel, exchange, international friendships, and the many ways that people cultivate relationships across cultures.

The Opening Reception and Award Ceremony will take place on Tuesday, April 10, from 6:30-8 p.m., at the Suffolk Center for Cultural Arts. The exhibit will be on view from April 10-21. Galleries are open Tuesday-Saturday, 11am to 4pm.
