Minnesota artist and Duluth native Anne Labovitz is on a 5-year artistic journey celebrating Duluth sister cities.  Through conversations with people and leaders in our five sister cities and in Duluth, Labovitz has created works in paint, words and video that include, reflect and are inspired by these personal interactions.  In 2017 the exhibit will finish its travels to all the Duluth sister cites, culminating in a show at the Tweed Museum of Art in May, 2018.

"122 Conversations is a gesture of friendship and sharing that intends to create compassionate connections and community through art – person to person, city to city, across the world."

~Anne Labovitz

What are our sister cities you ask? Duluth has five international sister cities: Rania, Kurdistan-Iraq , Växjö, Sweden, Petrozavodsk, Russia, Thunder Bay, Canada and Ohara-Isumi City, Japan.

The show leaves for Rani, Kurdistan Iraq this week, to Sweden in March, Russia in May and will be in Duluth in 2018.
