ART in Embassies Exhibition - United States Embassy Mbabane

April 26, 2017

"The exhibition includes the New York many people think of first - New York City - with Karin Batten's Ellis Island, a painting from an artist with a fascinating back-story, and a depiction of sites that are most emblematic of the United States' history of welcoming immigrants who have helped our country keep working toward forming a more perfect union".

Established in 1963, the U.S. Department of State's Office of Art in Embassies (AIE) plays a vital role in our nation's public diplomacy through a culturally expansive mission, creating temporary and permanent exhibitions, artist programming, and publications. Now with over 200 venues, AIE curates art for the representational spaces of all U.S. chanceries, consulates, and embassy residencies worldwide, selecting and commissioning contemporary art from the U.S. and the host countries.
