From Janet Van Fleet: I visited the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston last weekend, and was amazed to find an exhibit of a children's art exchange between Nagoya and Boston children! Here's a link to a description of the exhibit on the MFA's website. A Japanese translation is available at the bottom of the page.
Wonderfully, many of the children's pieces featured animals, so biodiversity is apparently on the minds of many. We will be working with children in Nagoya too, when we are there (see schedule, two posts below) so the connections keep asserting themselves!
