JBFC & TGAS Art Exchange, Part 2

July 8, 2013 2:52 pm Published by

This is the second in a series of blogs about an international art exchange project between  JBFC (Janada Batchelor Foundation for Children) and the Tulsa Girls Art School (TGAS). Twenty-one Tulsa girls collaborated with 21 of our girls in Tanzania to create a series of pieces that have now traveled more than 30,000 miles. They will go on display at the African Circles Art Show at Tulsa’s Circle Cinema, starting July 11 and continuing through September.

This blog offers a sneak peak of the art show and the process that created it, right here. I will introduce you to the artists and show how their pieces developed over the last five months. Keep checking back, we’ll preview one more piece on Wednesday before the Art Show begins on Thursday, July 11th.
