122 Conversations: person to person, art beyond borders
An artist led project, 122 Conversations is a culturally, socially engaged collaboration and exhibition traveling to the sister cities of Duluth, MN. Meeting face-to-face via skype video and in person with people of five countries, conversations are translated by artist Anne Labovitz into art pieces that speak of the urgency for understanding and compassion. The people from each city will add their responses as the show progresses toward its culminating venue at the Tweed Museum of Art in 2017.
  122 Conversations News.
In this issue, we'll update you on our recent travel and interviews with friends in Thunder Bay, Ontario in Canada! And, on our conversations going on this week from Anne's studio with Skpe interviews from Petrozavodsk, Russia

Conversations on site in Thunder Bay.
Last month we continued the conversations, focusing on the people and culture of Thunder Bay, Ontario. Anne traveled up the North Shore of Lake Superior crossing from Minneosota into Canada on May 21. During the three-day stay, she conducted conversational interviews, visited with many people and toured a few art galleriies. It was wonderful getting to know the interviewees in their beautiful city on the waterfront. A heartfelt thank you goes out to them for graciously accepting the invitation to be a part of 122 Conversations. Thank you also to the Sister Cities International of Thunder Bay and to the Thunder Bay Art Gallery where the traveling exhibition will open on September 10th.
