Sister Cities partnered with the Arts & Business Council of Nashville and hosted a "Creating Community: An International Artist Panel Discussion" and guests were able to hear from visiting and local artists about their inspiration, the impact of the artist exchange, and the arts community in their cities.
More highlights included a visit to an arts school in Nashville where they presented and talked with high school students. The artists also collaborated on a mural painted on a fence, in which neighbors helped paint.
Throughout the week, the three created their art and then donated their pieces to Sister Cities of Nashville to use in its signature World of Friendship fundraiser and silent auction. We hope to expand this artist exchange to include more artists from our sister city partners.
