Artists, friends, and family gather at an exhibition of work inspired by Jacob Lawrence’s The Migration Series in Mostar.

What a week! We have had a wonderful time here in Mostar working with emerging artists, elementary students, high school students, orphans, and teachers. Last night at our home base in Mostar, OKC Abrašević, we had an exhibition of artwork created during this week’s numerous workshops. Many of the artists we worked with attended, bringing their friends and families. It was great to see so many people view these artworks, expressing personal and community stories inspired by The Migration Series. I can’t help but wonder what Jacob Lawrence would think. Today we leave Mostar and head to Trebinje. More to come!
