I am so pleased to share that this painting Lavender Hills ( 5’x15′)has been selected by the curator of The Art in Embassies Program to be placed in the Ambassador to Zimbabwe, Bruce Wharton’s residence.

The Department of States’ office of Art in Embassies (AIE) was established by the Museum of Modern Art in 1953, and formalized as part of the Department of State by the Kennedy administration in 1963. AIE is one of the United States’ premier public-private partnership arts organizations, with over 20,000 individual and institutional participants, and a presence in some 200 venues within 189 countries worldwide. AIE furthers U.S. diplomacy through the power of the visual arts by expansive international cultural exchange initiatives.

AIE’s exhibitions allow foreign citizens, many of whom might never travel to the United States, to personally experience the depth and breadth of our artistic heritage and values, making what has been called a: ”footprint that can be left where people have no opportunity to see American art.”
