Tucson Museum of Art - Artist's Project for the World to Connect Through Art

Tucson, AZ , How do you get thousands of people to connect simultaneously during one week? The Global Art Project is a grass roots effort to unite people around the world in harmony through artistic expression. Since 1994, over thirty thousand individuals from six continents have participated in this biennial art exchange. Project Founder/Director Katherine Josten sees this as a helping hand to fulfill the need for new approaches to global stability through the sharing of visions and, also, as a way to emphasize the value of the arts as an important means of uniting people.

This fall, the Tucson Museum of Art will present a Global Art Project exhibition. The exhibition will include artwork and letters gathered over the years, as well as a display of paper hands created by people from numerous countries expressing their dreams about peace and global unity though words and pictures.

While the exhibition is on display, TMA School will conduct a four week family workshop based on the theme of global unity. The founder of this project will kick off the workshop with examples of other projects and a short talk about the program. The Museum workshop will give families a wonderful opportunity to work together for a good cause and will include a trip to the Museum, hands on activities and all supplies. Contact the Museum School at 624-1319 for more information re: schedule and cost.

Directions: Katherine Josten's Global Art Project will be exhibited in the Directions Gallery of the Tucson Museum of Art from September 11 - October 31, 1999.
