What does global citizenship look like? July 12, 2006

This is the question posed and answered, on display at Union Station through July 15th in the West Hall. Sister Cities International, Showcase of Young Artists features an art exhibit showcasing the work of over 80 pieces of original artwork by international youth. The artwork shows how young people view the world and their role within it as members of a global community.

The exhibit coincides with the Sister Cities International 50th Anniversary Conference being held in Washington, D.C. July 13-15, 2006. The conference will honor exceptional Sister City Partners and advocates for expansion of the program will lobby Capitol Hill.

The Showcase of Young Artists has encouraged youth from around the world to express the mission of Sister Cities International through artwork since 1988. After the close of the exhibit at Union Station, the artwork will travel to various Sister Cities within the United States.
