Young Artist Winner, Jennifer Jones is joined by her parents, Rose Marie and Alan Jones, and Coordinator Robin Sprague for a picture at the January board meeting.
Since 1988, the Sister Cities International Young Artists Showcase has encouraged youth from around the globe to consider the honorable mission of Sister Cities International and express their interpretation of that mission promoting peace through mutual respect, understanding, cooperation through one individual, one community at a time. Hundreds of artists have shared their talent with the sister cities community over the past 20 years. The theme this year was POWER OF EXCHANGE. The winning piece designed by Jennifer Jones was a detailed sketch of her family’s Native American culture and conversely the perceptions others have of them. Through the exchange of ideas and really getting to know people as individuals, there will be better understanding of Native American life today.
Jennifer will move on to the international competition.
