Children’s Art Exchange w/Mutianyu China

Did you know that the town of Shelburne Falls has a sister village in China, Mutianyu? At the Childrens Art Museum in March the monthly theme is “Our Friends Around the World. We will be coordinating an art exchange with the children of Mutianyu where the artwork will be on permanent display at the schoolhouse there. Mutianyu welcomes approximately 1.6 million visitors a year as tourists pass through the village to visit the Great Wall.

Please submit your artwork by March 21st. We especially welcome artwork that shows aspects of life in the Hilltowns. It will be on display at the Children’s Art Museum until it makes its way across to China.
