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